Watercolor #99 - "Double Delight" - SOLD

This is a spectacular watercolor. The detail in the flowers is stunning. That James was able to get this much detail and keep the lovely softness of the colors is amazing. I always thought James painted watercolors like oils. This is also a very impressive size, the image is 13 x 17 1/2 $1200

Soft Morn 

Watercolor #98 - "Soft Morn" - SOLD

This watercolor was probably painted back around 2004 when we still were living in Florida. It is a very nice size the image being 9 1/2 x 16 1/4. It comes double matted and ready for your frame of choice. Jimmie liked to use liquid watercolors which made for very strong colors. The yellow is lovely in this watercolor. $1100

Watercolor #96 - SOLD

5x7 Sometimes on these cards James would use a combination of pen and watercolor. This card is a great example of that technique.

Watercolor #94 - SOLD

5x7 James loved Willow trees, he actually wrote a play that was titled "High is the Willow". When we were landscaping the house we built here in Hickory in 2008 the one request my Jimmie had was for a Willow tree. We planted a tree that was about 6 ft. it is now well over 12 feet.

Watercolor #93 - $350

James would paint watercolors on greeting cards to use for friends and family for special occasions. When I was organizing his art studio after he passed I found several of these cards in a drawer. They are 5x7 come matted and fit easily in a 8x10 frame. I thought fans and collectors would enjoy owning one of these very special cards. $350

Watercolor #92 - $500

#92 James had painted this tropical flower in an oil for our dear friends Ken and Sharon Smith, so he decided to try it in a watercolor. This was painted around 2005.

Watercolor #91 - SOLD

This is a very impressionistic bouquet done in soft pinks, one of my favorite colors.

Watercolor #90 - SOLD

#90 James knew that I love flowers, so he would surprise me with his idea of a very special bouquet. He loved to add a touch of glitter to make it more dramatic. My Jimmie was never boring LOL

Watercolor #89 - $500

 This lovely watercolor was painted by James in 2012 and the certificate of authenticity has an actual autograph of James on it along with the painting. This is around the time that James and I decided to occasionally offer watercolors at personal appearances, but we did not offer them in the online store.
