James E Rice Artist Bio:
Searching the Mysterious side of Landscape Painting A setting to ponder other forms of life within our world. This may involve a spirit world, a parallel universe, extraterrestrial life – something more, more than just ourselves. Jim loves to go on hiking trips deep into the woods & forests and take photographs. Only a couple per trip will be suitable enough to be used as ideas for paintings. Hiking trips have taken him into the Catskills, in Monongalia County West Virginia, Bear Mountain, the Kaaterskill Falls area, the Shenandoah of Virginia and others. James studied fine arts at both James Madison University where he received an M.A. He continued to West Virginia University where he received his M.F.A. degree. James received teaching assistantships from both universities and afterwards moved to Long Island New York. Here he worked in the commercial art field for a number of years that led to other pursuits. The desire to explore the mysteries in nature through paintings became too compelling not to do.
