Artist of the Month

Beech Morning Sea Grape Gallelry"Morning," Watercolor by Jim Beech

 

During the month of September, watercolor and acrylic artist Jim Beech will be our featured 2D artist.  Jim enjoyed a career in advertising and graphic design in both the US and Canada, but always found time to further his studies in watercolor and to pursue his love of painting.  His subject matter is varied and includes landscapes, cityscapes, and marine themes.  He especially enjoys depicting old buildings and boats of special character.  Jim's art is designed to tell a story and to spark the viewer's imagination.
