Small Works / Color Studies - Memories of Summer.




Summer’s End, oil on panel, 5 x 7 inches, Jim Serrett


Summer’s End is always just a bit melancholy.
The mood of this sunset seemed to say it all.
There seems to be a longing for the sun in each of us.
It may be why we respond so emotionally to sunsets.








Comes the Rain, oil on panel, 5 x 7 inches, Jim Serrett

Rain showers moving across the horizon are just fascinating to watch.
Pretty challenging to paint from life, this one is more memory than actual.
They leave a lasting impression.









Pine Hills Bluff, oil on panel, 5 x7 inches, Jim Serrett


LaRue-Pine Hills a 150-foot limestone bluff that rises out of the Mississippi floodplain, the massive bluffs extend roughly 5 miles along Highway 3. The vistas from it are amazing, however this view is of the park access road looking towards the bluffs from Hwy3.

Best time to be on the lake.
Kayaking, wandering, exploring
and just slowing down and being.








Rain Over There, oil on panel, 5 x 7 inches, Jim Serrett

The late summer rain,
paint it with all the colors of the wind.
