Hooray! This beauty has found a home. πŸ‘

LAKE SUNSET, Acrylic on Panel, 12x12”, Β©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 SOLD! 🍻

I love to follow nature photographers because I have deep respect for their craft. As an amateur photo hound I know this simple fact: it's hard! It takes lots of time and effort and skills to find the right light and the right composition. One photographer I particularly enjoy is Susan L. Hoel. She's a fellow sailor and appreciates the special qualities of light dancing across the water as much as I do. She kindly let me base this painting on one of her photos. Thanks Sue!

I've been mesmerized by the glow of the late afternoons this autumn. The golden hour seems amplified by all the warm colors of the changing foliage. I hope you are enjoying the show!

SEA BENCH, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
There's a lot more to this painting than you might think. First off, it's based on a photo series from UK painter Michael Newton (@blackdog54). Michael has been posting photos of this bench in all different types of weather for some time now. Sometimes there's people, but often there is nothing but the potential for people. And of course that epic view. There's a quiet, slightly lonely mood to his series that I find beautiful. It's a mood I find in my own work so it's nice to see it in his, too. 
The other aspect that I appreciate in Michael Newton's paintings is the connection between philosophy and art. It's a fascination of mine as well. His series of Distressed Philosophers cracks me up and you should definitely check them out.

As for this painting, I had every intention of filling in the giant red foreground with something more, um, realistic, but after trying many different ideas, I decided I liked it the way it was. Enjoy!

SMALL FARM, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
Here's the latest in my ongoing obsession with small northern Wisconsin farms. Farm scenes are a pretty well worn subject for painters, but I think that's because it's easy for people to connect with them. You don't have to look hard to find farmers in my family tree. Enjoy!

SURF 🎨 20" x 20" Canvas Print $75 🎨 24 Hour Sale, Only 3 available. DM or See Profile for Link.

I wanted to loosen up on this painting and these gorgeous sunlit clouds offered the perfect opportunity.

This is the beach where I learned to surf. It's a magical spot in Costa Rica blessed with ridiculous sunsets like this nearly every night of the year. When dusk falls, there's a moody mist that blurs everything like you see it here. Dusk is also my favorite time to surf because the relentless sun has cooled off and the water of the Pacific Ocean feels so good. I hope you enjoy this work.

AUTUMN 1, Β©2018 Jim Musil, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", Β©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US πŸ˜‰
I love color, so it's somewhat odd that this is the first time I've tried to capture the beauty of fall foliage in its all its glory. I think it's probably because peak leaf color is usually pretty short and I often don't have the time to respond. Luckily, I'm more organized this year. More to come!

MARAKELE, ©2018 Jim Musil, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 Sold 🎨

A collector was sad that she missed out on one of my sold paintings, so I told her I would paint anything she wanted. She sent me dozens of great photos from her trip to South Africa and we worked to come up with this composition. I enjoy the process of working with clients because it forces me out of comfortable subjects. Of course, I still managed to include an epic cloudscape. As it happens, the buyer of this painting is also an artist, which I take as a big compliment. Check out @piecefularts to see her beautiful glass mosaics. Enjoy!

Watching the sun come up at anchor on a sailboat is one of my favorite things to do. Rising early, I step lightly in the dark and brew the coffee quietly so as not to wake the rest of the boat. It's an incredibly peaceful moment to sit there silently and watch the sky put on this epic show. This morning was particularly stunning as passing squalls built up along the eastern horizon as the sun burst up between them. I love to take a favorite memory like this and record it in paint. πŸ‘

BAY 2, Acrylic on Panel, 8 x 8", ©2017 Jim Musil 🎨 $150 🎨
πŸ˜‰
The second in a series of small paintings of this beautiful shallow bay. This time I've included a beach with a fishing boat pulled up on shore. The water is a lovely light teal and it plays nicely off the bright warm sand tones and the reflections of the cooler blues of the sky. I truly love to explore all the different hues and values present in a scene like this. I hope you enjoy it, too! πŸ‘

RED BARNS, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 🎨
πŸ˜‰
Barns look best in the late summer when nature's colors work so well together. All the big players are here in this one -- blue skies turning into flaming orange, purple clouds echoed by yellowing fields, and lingering greens punctuated by those classic red barns. Sure, a bitter cold is coming, but for the moment let's appreciate the splendor and harmony around us.

SUBURBAN SKIES, Acrylic on Panel, 8 x 8", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $150 🎨
πŸ˜‰
I wasn't thrilled with this painting when I finished it back in February, but it's really grown on me since then. At the time, I wanted to paint looser with bigger strokes and more movement, but I felt this was so different from my previous work that it just didn't fit. In reality, it turned out to be where I was headed all along. It happens to still be available and I'm posting again while taking a much appreciated painting break. Enjoy!

FIELD SHADOWS, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 🎨
πŸ˜‰
This painting makes me happy. First off, I love how these colorful tree shadows stretch up the golden hill to that lovely little white barn with its red roof. This image had been in my mind for weeks and the only way to get it out was to paint it. This painting also makes me happy because I loved finding the farm. I've made a ritual of taking long weekend drives on back roads with my dad searching for stuff like this. Modern life is batshit busy and I really appreciate this precious time I can carve out with my dad. 
So, friends, what purpose should a painting have? I've been thinking about this lately and I realized that, for me at least, a worthwhile goal for a painting is to make someone happy. What do you think?

FIELD SHADOWS, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", Β©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 🎨 πŸ˜‰ This painting makes me happy.

This painting gets a second chance! I was pretty happy with the first version, but over time some things started to bother me. First, I wanted to add more warmth into the sky, sails, and water. Second, I wanted to have the sails echo each other which makes a better impact I think. Do you ever rework a painting after it's done?β €

❀
I spent way more time planning this painting than actually painting it. I often work from photos but to get the scene I want I need to take thousands of shots. I’ve been thinking about this prairie series for a couple years, so I knew the mood I wanted to achieve. I combed through all the possibilities to come up with this one. Often I’ll combine several photos β€” or just add what I want directly β€” to come up with a composition I like. After I have that rough plan, I carefully choose a color palette that fits the mood. Photos usually have boring color, so choosing a palette and translating the photo into it are an important step. When I feel I'm ready to paint, I'll do a rough sketch with markers on the panel to find the vital parts of the painting. For most of my paintings, this one included, all of the above took more time than actually putting the paint on it. I enjoy all the parts of this process and I really like how this one turned out. Enjoy!

When I was young, our family would drive across these prairies to go visit our relatives a couple states away. It takes most of the day to get across the width of South Dakota and I would ride by myself in the back of our old pickup truck that had been outfitted with a topper and a makeshift bed. Wildly unsafe by today's standards, right? Still, those long hours laying there looking out at this endless sea of grass had a huge impact on me. I used to imagine that these hay bales that dot the fields were like houses for some creatures that we couldn't see. Actually, I still think that, but I don't tell anyone. Enjoy! β€πŸ˜‰

I’ve been wanting to paint this series my whole life. I was born and raised in South Dakota. Vast treeless prairies cover most of the state. Gentle grassy hills undulate out to the horizon dotted only with an occasional ranch, herd of cattle, or lonesome telephone pole. The skies aren’t just big, they are enormous. Most people can’t stand this endless nothing, but to me it’s one of the most poetic and peaceful sights I know. This scenery is part of me. I hope you enjoy!

I've always wanted to paint a lighthouse, so I did! The lighthouse depicted here is the lovely brick structure standing sentry on the rocky northern tip of Sand Island in Lake Superior's Apostle Islands. This is the final piece in my series from Sand Island. I really love going to a unique place like this and then painting it. For me the process is about remembering and celebrating an awesome experience.  I hope you've enjoyed it, too!

SEA CAVES, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
These stunning rock formations are part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in northernmost Wisconsin on the shores of the greatest of the great lakes, Lake Superior. These pristine sandstone islands get hammered by wicked storms and relentless waves creating the carved beauty you see here. This is one of my favorite spots on earth. You can only get to them by boat and only when the wind is favorable. Luckily, we were able to poke around in them on a recent misty morning and it was fun to try to capture the moment here in paint. I hope you enjoy my friends!

I love this brilliant palette! The high intensity primaries play well with the softer oranges and purples. It makes for a rich, warm and happy mood. I enjoy painting more when I just force my own palette onto a subject. It's a joy for me to track down these scenes out on the lake during the warm summer evenings. I hope you enjoy them too!

There's so much that I love in this painting. This little sailor is in a class known as Optimist. It's a simple boat intended for kids to learn what it's like to sail on their own. As I watch my boys grow up and find their own way, sometimes all you can do is follow along and paint the splendor of it.

BIG MCKENZIE LAKE, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
There are thousands upon thousands of gorgeous lakes like this in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Swimming, boating, fishing -- it's a huge part of life here. They are so common, in fact, that it's easy to take them for granted. You don't notice it until you go somewhere else and realize there's not a lake of some sort every 5 miles. 
For this series, I'm using bigger brush strokes, brighter broken colors, and loads of texture. It's a blast to paint like this. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed painting it!

BLUE LAKE, Acrylic on Panel, 24 x 24", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $1200 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
Rule 1: No blending paint on the panel. I wanted the colors to sit beside each other and interact.
Rule 2: Leave the red ground showing. I love how the broken nature of the strokes stand out and vibrate.
Rule 3: Add loads of texture. I really want you to see these brushstrokes. 
I find it helpful to set rules like this for myself when I start a painting. It prevents me from wandering through different styles and techniques. Of course, I'm free to break them anytime I want. Do you set any rules for yourself when you paint?

Instagram is puzzler sometimes, am I right? This painting is my most liked of the year so far, yet it remains available for sale. Has anyone else noticed this?

OCEAN, 16 x 20”, Acrylic on Panel, ©️2017 Jim Musil

While I recharge my batteries, posting a favorite from last year. This was something of a breakthrough for me as it got me to loosen up on both details and color. The sky wasn’t really green in the photo, but it just looked so much better green. I work from photos a lot but I learned here that you can’t let them rule your decisions. I hope you enjoy! 😁
