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!

YOUNG SAILORS, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
The final piece in my series of young kids learning to sail is DONE. I absolutely love how this one turned out! I wanted to make it bold with striking color, but still rough with lots of movement and texture. I'm going to keep working in this style as I explore different subjects. I hope they turn out as well as these awesome little boats. I suspect I'll be doing some more boats on the water in the future. I hope you've enjoyed this series!

TWO SAILBOATS, Acrylic on Panel, 12 x 12", ©2018 Jim Musil 🎨 $300 Free Shipping in US 🎨
πŸ˜‰
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?

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! 😁

Given the innocent nature of the subject, this was a surprisingly emotional painting for me to complete. When I was growing up, my mom would paint lilacs like these in watercolor. I remember them well. They were some of my favorite paintings that she did and I loved seeing them brighten up the walls of my childhood home. I wasn't intending this to be an homage to her or her lilacs -- I was just going to paint lilacs because they are stunning right now. Still, painting is incredibly meditative and one can never tell where the mind will wander whilst under the spell of the brush. I found myself pulled back into those days and fond thoughts of her. It makes me happy to have finished this painting. I hope you enjoy them Mom!

I love the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. This scene was captured on the same day as my previous painting in this series. Now, however, it's near noon and the sun is bright and lighting up this shallow bay. The passing squalls are still stirring up decent waves and you can see one dumping rain in the distance. If memory serves me right, I was about to get drenched from one coming behind me. I hope you've enjoyed this series. It was a blast to paint.

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. Do you have a favorite place you like to watch the sunrise?

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. Do you have a favorite place you like to watch the sunrise? πŸ‘ #iloveart  #travelpainting  #bvi  #impressionism  . . . . . #galleryart  #contemporarypainting  #contemporaryartist  #artcollection #painters  #paintingart  #ilovepainting  #artaddict  #landscapepainting  #abstractlandscape  #landscapeart  #artforsalebyartist  #artistsofinstagram  #doitfortheprocess  #thehappynow  #artistlife  #artcurator  #studioscenes  #acolorstory  #makersmovement  #creativityfound  #wearethemakers  #originalpainting  #sailing  #anchor  #sunrise

One of my goals for 2018 is to use more paint and to lay it down boldly. I like my paintings best when I can clearly see the structure of the brush strokes. As the year has progressed, I've gotten increasingly more comfortable doing this. This entire series of Sea Skies has been rewarding and fun. I get a real kick out of laying down these big strokes of strong color. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am!

Still seeking dramatic movement and bold colors here. I love all the different shades of blue you find in the Caribbean -- from the deep purply blues at the apex of the sky to the stunning teals of the shallows. The island in the foreground is Pelican Island in the British Virgin Islands and it's a fantastic spot for diving and snorkling. The sun is shining warm and the weather is clear -- a fine day for sailing my friends! πŸ‘
