Jim Schmoyer ::::::: Paint
Most of Jim's work is done on location, where he lets the location affect his work, both figuratively and literally. He will often infuse sand or dirt from the location into his paint mixture. When one touches his paintings, these location elements will be very apparent. He attended Tyler School of Art. Jim says "The beach is, of course, one of my favorite spots. Being in the climate, smelling the air and watching the sun change location all contribute to the end result. I'm not really trying to create a realistic representation of what I see. I'm more interested in creating something that captures the time spent and my sensory experiences in this environment."
