Welcome to Jim Urmston

Landscape is my subject of choice. In my work I explore the mountains, valleys and canyons of Southern California, seeking views just beyond the architectural intrusion of man. These natural settings satisfy a search for a subject both beautiful in form and rich in formal and historical reference. The traditions of idealism, symbolism, and fantasy in landscape painting inform my choice of subject.

  • For me, all aspects of the California landscape are filled with a beauty that I strive to transmit to canvas in order to share my vision with others.
