Artist: Jim Daly Title: After School Lessons Size: 12" x 9" Release Year: 2014 Medium: Giclee on canvas, hand signed by the artist. About the Artist: Soft-spoken and modest, Jim Daly would seem a reluctant celebrity. Still, his tender and nostalgic portrayals of children have earned him a wide and ardent following among collectors. Born in Oklahoma and raised throughout the West, Jim developed an early appreciation for the art of Norman Rockwell and at a young age knew he wanted to be a painter himself. He can recall"”and his parents still own"”a painting he did at age 13 of an old-fashioned barbershop. "Even back then,"¯ he says, "I had an interest in the past ... and I still prefer the warm palette I used then."¯ After a stint in the army in the mid-1960s, Jim studied nights at the Los Angeles Art Center College of Design while working days at an aerospace company. Within just a few years, he was able to devote himself entirely to his art. His wife, Carole, and their four now-grown sons frequently modeled for him. Jim's paintings are represented in many private and corporate collections and have earned a wealth of awards, including the Favell Museum's Western Heritage Award for excellence in portraying realistically and accurately early Americana. Articles about Jim's work have appeared in Southwest Art, American Artist and Art West magazines among others and in a recent U.S. Art magazine poll, gallery owners named him one of their top 20 most popular artists. Jim has also had the pleasure of illustrating three well- received children's books. He and Carole currently make their home in western Oregon.
