"Shrimp boats is a-coming..."

Juicy colours and paint and ... boats! What more could I ask for!

Lovely song, lovely singer and a lovely bright painting, 😀

It's good, Jim. You are edging towards abstract in this.

I second Thalia’s comment!

Thanks all. Art is strange is it not? Years ago, if I'd painted something like this it would have gone straight in the bin; now I paint it deliberately and am pleased with it. I'll be admiring a row of housebricks and an unmade bed shortly..( er no, maybe not.(-:)

Very effective and impressionistic - like it, Jim

Omg Jim, I remember this, my mum had the record! Thanks for the memory. Do you remember 'Put another Nickel in, in the Nickelodeon ' ? Love the abstractish colourful painting.

Ha, I certainly do Carole..."Mucis,music,music" by Theresa Brewer. Seems like yesterday....Guy Mitchell and "She wore red feathers" era...(-:

I've re-worked the painting a little; added and finished it off a bit.

Yes we had 'Red Feathers and the Hoola hoola skirt' 😂

Hang on Studio Wall

A Jo Stafford song from the mists of time inspired a very loose acrylic .

About the Artist
Jim Morris

I've reached 81 years young and love to paint and draw. Watercolours are my preference used also with line and wash. I paint or sketch something most days of whatever takes my fancy. Glad to have found this site. I don't feel I have a set painting style but I tend to go for impressionism rather…
