Loughros Bay Ireland
Loughros Bay, Ireland was a stunning view to behold. Unfortunately, an artist can’t capture the scene that is before him. He can only hope. Irish skies always seem to be in turmoil, set against the green hills with sparkling heather on the slopes. Although this is a fairly small original, it will reproduce at a much larger version via a Giclee print and the marvel of reproduction techniques by Fine Art America.

Wild Irish – by Jim Gola

Wild Irish

“Wild Irish” was part of a series of paintings produced after a trip to
Ireland to gather material for a series entitled “Ireland Revisited”, but
that is another story, to lengthy to tell here.
painting was a quick experiment using a new medium I wanted to try
out to see if I could “push” the color without diluting it.
Gamlin’s Neo Megilp was the trick. I will use this medium again.

This painting can be purchased through the artist or you may purchase
full size to reduced sized Giclee reproductions by going to:

Winter of “04” Jim Gola, Artist

Winter of 04 

Winter of “04” has been hanging on one of my walls since that year. The more I look at it, I marvel at how little time it took to paint the picture. It is one of those minimalist paintings that seem to generate an emotion with very little color. I value this little work as much as many of my larger more extravagant efforts. The view was taken from the hillside access road to my home during a winter snowstorm of that period. It is unfortunate that a 92 pixel reproduction will not do justice to the subtle changes of color and texture on this canvas.
