Jim has been a Plein Air painter since retiring from a 32 year career as an art teacher. Most of those years were spent in Iowa, Colorado, and Arizona. Jim has been coming to Utah to visit since his son moved here in 1993. Three years ago, he started spending the summers in Murray and last summer spent many hours painting in Murray Park. Jim laughingly calls himself the Plein Air Artist of Murray Park (PAMP). The subject matter in the park is endless and deciding the paintings to display at the new Murray City Hall was not easy. Jim feels honored to be among the artists selected.
Plein Air painting is done on site and out of doors. The process usually requires that the picture be completed within two hours before the lighting, shadows, and sometimes the weather, change. Jim especially enjoys the challenge of creating a painting that meets those constraints.
Show Dates: September 26 - November 28, 2923 at Murray City Hall (10 East 4800 South).
