Wonderfull... this style remindes me the artist Rebecca Guay.

This pic is my absolute favorite of them all! The silent satisfaction and the peace is just so intoxicating...their tender embrace brings a sense of not only intimacy, but of security to the picture. I love it!

Why thank you Aubry! You kind words are greatly appreciated. Thanks for stopping by.

I am going to have to get out my thesaurus on this one, I don't know enough words for FANTASTIC! My goodness, I could sit and look through your gallery for hours and do very little else...*sigh*

naddy's picture

Two of my favorite artists. Thank you for kindest of words.

Very lovely work. I feel a sense of N. C. Wyeth and maybe some Sulamith Wulfing...but obviously your own. It evokes a softness and sweetness without being cloying. Very nice. I will definitely bookmark this site. Thanks.

I love your work... Everything feels so right about it. I have a couple of non-canon fanfic LoTR characters that these two would fit... Wonderful muse fodder. Thanks.

Thank you for the kind words Karen. I work on 140 lb. Arches watercolor rag paper & my sizes vary. Not too big. This piece was roughly 12x18 inches.

James, your work is very awe-inspiring and I must ask, is their a particular size to which you work (ie: large or small) and what did you do these pieces on? Watercolor rag, illustration board, watercolor board, etc. Many thanks for posting such beautiful work Smile

Much thanks Hadassah. You've read the emotion to perfection in this image. They will never part again.

This picture is so amazingly beautiful...my favorite of yours definetely. The expression on the woman's face makes you wonder if he was gone for years and just returned...and I love his face, he just looks so peaceful. Lovely.

wow....this picture is beutiful! i love every thing in it! great job James! i can see u put alot of feeling into this picture...i would have too...

Guest's picture

I love the amount of detail you got on their facial features (and everything else for that matter). You definitely have a great hand with watercolors!

I've always been into dark and powerful comic art, this is such a contrast to that.
I hope that one day I can create beautiful and delicate art like this.
Amazing job on everything, composition, colors, the figures, everything.

Lovely James as always. I was looking at Fantasia on DVD and it has alot of sketches and concept work in the extra feature section and I was blown away.Your work has that quality about it. If I were ever to make an animated film you would be one of my first choices as collaborative artist. Now that would be something to see!

Thank you Maria!

Don't cry Joan. Thank you for your heartwarming compliment. Emotion is everything when I paint.

naddy's picture

Why, thank you Mary!

naddy's picture

Thanks!

Well daaaamn, can you make me feel any more unadequate? Just kidding. Wink What I most love about your art are all the little details - like the crown and the little castle in the background here. Very nicely done.

Guest's picture

For some reason, this makes me want to cry ...... can't for the life of me imagine why. Maybe because I feel YOU're looking at them with so much tenderness, as you paint?

rhiamon's picture

Awwwwwwwww, fantastic!! Beautifully done - very powerful! This is a favourite...I can't say it's THE favourite, because I love so many of your paintings, but this is definitely a list topper!

fegan's picture

Amazing!!!!!your watercolor is really cool!!!

faemich's picture

James, I'm absolutely amazed at how you captured their emotions in this one. I sense joy and agony at the same time. And the atmosphere makes it seem such a private moment, you just want to turn away and let them be. Beautiful!

naddy's picture

Thanks Natalia! Yes, that is a sad love story.

naddy's picture

Thank you, Cynthia! I knew you would like this. It was a commission & it does have a story. It's part of a long novel....too long to explain.

naddy's picture

Thank you Vera & Maura. She's not crying, but they tearful in happiness for not seeing each other until now. They never want to part again.

naddy's picture

Yes I do. Though I have a limited amount because it was a commission.

Art at its best.
