Jim Decker - Jim Decker Artist

Living in a small town in rural Maine, there is no shortage of landscapes or subjects to paint. From the beautiful farms , rolling hills and deep forests to the many lakes, streams and breath taking shore line. It is no wonder I love my life here.

Some of my favorite subjects are that of farms and all that relates to the beauty and 'Simple Lifestyle" that I've chosen to live.
Upon my choosing a subject to paint, with a blank canvas in hand, a story is born and I begin portraying that story in the painting.
If the viewer sees what I'm portraying then we have made a connection and I am successful.
