November 2012 -- Jim O'Rourke

Artist's Statement
"My work is primarily land and seascape, still life and object painting and drawing. My medias are oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil, colored pencil and pastel.
I like working from my photography, which I use as a reference library, as well as on site and inner inspiration. I have only recently decided to take my work out of the closet, (so to speak), and bring it to the public eye. I also handcraft and paint walking sticks and paint on wooden eggs and slate. I am currently painting or drawing almost every day and even being nearly flat broke, I am having the most productive and fulfilling time of my life which I would trade for nothing.
Check my web site often to view new additions to my gallery as they are produced.

I work on commission but have a wide variety of finished work available.
Write to me with comments please!
Your feedback and interest in my work is very important to me."
