About the Process

James uses all of his training, instincts, experience and creativity to conceive large, colorful, bold oil paintings. His colors reflect and enhance the ever-changing light around us. My process is simple. First I take a photo of what I see that inspires me, then I put it into my computer, then I paint from that. During the painting process the paintings often take on a life of their own. As they say you need to just go with the flow. The fun is the journey, not the end result. My passion is creating large, colorful one of a kind oil paintings that knock you off your feet when you walk into the room and to help you see how beautiful simple things can be. “Every one of my paintings have a lady bug in there somewhere, Lady bugs are good luck.
