This website has moved from an HTML based site to this easier to maintain GoDaddy site. The old one was fun to do, but updating took too much time away from painting. The old "News" and "Creating A Painting" sections have not been carried over, but may appear in revised form in the future.
Jim's work has appeared in a number of special events including the following exhibitions and auctions: the 2008 OPA National Exhibition; the 2009 and 2010 shows at the Bennington Center of the Arts; the 2010 C.M. Russell Art Auction; and the 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014 Richard Schmid Fine Art Auctions.
