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 These natural settings satisfy a search for a subject both beautiful in form and rich in formal and historical reference.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.
