"Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do."Edgar Degas
My name is James Gaar and my art career has been that of a prize-winning graphic designer and fine art painter. Two of the early influences on my taste in art were Andrew Wyeth and Franz Kline. They were at opposite ends of the visual arts spectrum, one did representational and the other abstract expressionism. I've enjoyed working in both of these styles.
