Jim also welcomes commission projects and brings the client added value through sharing ‘in process” images of the painting
“Landscapes touch everyone and in this Nature really is everything: all the animals, the landforms and especially the trees. For me, trees have been friends since I was first able to wander through the woods to meet them. Trees seem an endless harmony to enjoy, explore and understand. And yes, the trees dance just as Rumi describes, “Every tree and plant in the meadow seemed to be dancing.” The dots share this freedom as I paint: they relate, as well, how everything seems connected. All this inspires me to paint. All this brings a sense of well being”
