August Stream

This piece was a Plein Air painting. I was going to work with acrylic first. Changed my mind. Brought my Mixable Oil. Got started and the paint was tacky. Would not work too well. My media would work I thougt to loose things up. Wrong!! Grabbed my pallette knife and here it is!! 11" x 14"

My First Two Paintings!!!

My first oil painting!!! January 1968 in Hillsboro, Oregon. It was from a book on how to paint. I followed the steps. Not very happy but it was a start on how to paint!!

The second one was in January 28th. Oil and from a Calendar. I was thinking there was some hope!! The Calendar had three little ducks in there but I was not good enough to paint the small ones!!!
Have fun folks!!

"Walking Down The Path"


It seems that the only way that I can put in a picture is to copy and paste from one of my older webs.
This piece is about 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"  Acrylic.

Talking to the Birds

                  MINIATURE PAINTINGS - jim smith    

It has been a challenge to put in a picture in here.  They changed the format.  MMMM?
I put this one in in a different set up by copy and paste.  Does anyone know about the
change in the blog?
