    I just heard about Jimmy. I am so sorry. Jimmy was a wonderful person and a great friend. You both are in my thoughts constantly. I wish I had stayed in better contact.

    We moved from California and started fiber art workshops in NY at the Greenville Arms, an inn, which already had painting workshops. (We also created a chocolate factory.)

    Love,

    Mark (and Kim) LaPolla

    1. Jimmy’s paintings were painted by his own hand. He worked from his photographs and sketches that he created. some were sketches he drew by hand,and some were sketches that he manipulated digitally from several of his photos like the montages or multiple exposures.

      His photographs were ones he took and worked with on computer to turn them into montages like the multiple images he took earlier in his photographic career.

    Since Jimmy is deceased, I handle the sales. I was his wife. I believe the paintings on the website are all for sale. I will go through them to make sure. Which one interests you? The photographs are also.

  8. Hi, I run a nonprofit art gallery in Davis, CA. Jimmy must have sold or gifted a print of his to a fellow artist. The gallery received it as a donation. I’m trying to get a sense of what to price it at for our charity auction. It’s a small still life from 1973. He studied here at UC Davis, apparently.
