Rainbow Girl…Jim’s latest Fantasy Fest Inspiration

November 11, 2009

rainbow girl Original 15 in. round

After a very long 8 days in Key West for the famed annual “Fantasy Fest”, Jim is home recovering. “Recovering” for Jim means being able to sit quietly at his painting table and create his works of art before leaving  for another show in Orlando last weekend.(and then to Portland, Oregon the weekend of the 14th for his West Coast Studio show). While in Key West, Jim completed the painting above, Rainbow Girl, while the 75,000 people who attended Fantasy Fest, paraded by.

Rainbow Girl was painted on a round canvas, something Jim rarely does. His use of black and white to accentuate the colors of the rainbow and it’s reflection on the waves and sandy shore shows some brilliant execution on Jim’s part. And the perfect little color on the woman’s lips that so simply defines her sensuality…excellent.

Jim is publishing Rainbow Girl in two sizes as Giclee canvas reproductions. The Original Oil is available for purchase also at a great pre-publication price. If you are interested in either, please contact the studio.

Jim’s West Coast Studio show in Portland, Oregon is on Saturday Nov. 14th from 1-7 pm. If you’d like to attend, call the studio for the address. 800-975-9927

    LOVE Rainbow Girl…. Came THIS close to buying it at Fantasy Fest… Then Jim’s wife talked us into commissioning a piece along the same line which includes my wife Jan…. I think we will call it Rainbow Janet….. Can’t wait…..

    And for those of you that have never met Jim in person…. he is even more incredible as a person, than he is as an artist…. Ted and Jan
