Chinese Fish

Acrylic painting of Chinese Fish by Jim Demello
This is a project in work. Getting each fish to look like a fish and then getting the water to reflect light is a real chore. But the many colors together is pretty cool.

Picture of Saturn

Picture of planet Saturn

Thought I would upload picture I took of Saturn with my digital camera through my small telescope. Not very exciting but Saturn is always exciting to see with your own eyes.

Shenzhen Girl

Acrylic portrait of Shenzhen Girl by Jim Demello

I have worked on this painting forever. Rubbed it out and started over. Did a detailed background and then while I was perusing Daniel Greene's paintings, decided to just fill in the background. Has helped the painting a lot in my mind. But Im finally terribly tired of this paintng. Never again.

Acrylic painting of Teapot by Jim Demello
Recent still-life. The teapot in the painting is really less visible than it is here. Stole that from Gregg Kreutz. Makes for great drama.
Acrylic 11 x 14

Flowers and Checked Tablecloth

Here is an painting I did in 2006 in acrylic. I haven't changed my style at all in the last 2 years. Still like dark backgrounds with lots of contrast, lost and found lines. Is painting a waste of time? Still trying to figure that one out.
