This piece looks great in our room, the alpine theme was just what we were looking for with a fantastic visual texture to the work. Many thanks!

Tom... I am glad the piece arrived in good stead. I am always concerned when I ship to Europe as I can not track once it leaves the U.S. I hope my notes were helpful. I usually like to ship my paintings framed but the shipping weight has made that impossible these last few years. Maybe I can find some lighter weight frames and make that possible again. You are right ...that painting was a very textured piece. The palette knife did it's job. It was a lot of fun dragging the paint off the knife and hitting the right place! Enjoy. Jim Gola, Artist

The painting surpassed my expectations. It is a big view inside of a small format. Jim's work draws one closer; and the painting does not melt away at that point, but seems to gain in detail. William Lewis

William.. Thank you so much for your kind comments. You hit the nail on the head. Although I enjoy large format pictures, I have found that I can produce the same results with smaller formats. I have painted many pictures at this location. It affords me the closest sky views next to what I have experienced first hand in Montana (..the big sky country) and Ireland. Of course, the sky stands still for no man, thus the artists' license in completing the work in studio. I am glad you are enjoying the artwork as much as I did painting it. Jim

Jim was very easy, quick and a pleasure to deal with. The experience couldn't really have been any better.

This is the second painting that we have purchased from artist Jim Gola. It hopefully will not be the last. We enjoy and appreciate his unique style, attention to detail, and the fact that he seems to have the ability to draw you into his work. Some part of the artist is reflected deeply into his paintings; much like a memory. We have a small but special wall space that The Refuge will brighten up and add much interest to...

Rory... Again..thank you for your kind remarks. It is really great when an art collector recognizes something in a picture that the artist perceived when executing the piece. These small works help to keep us loose in our approach to painting. That in turn spins off to our larger format paintings of which you also have one. There is always a niche somewhere in the house where a painting is repeatedly viewed. I have several in my home. All my best, my friend. Jim

Photographs of this piece (Late Summer Colors by Jim Gola) surely did not do it justice. It exceeded my expectations. Also, communicating with the artist was easy and I felt and appreciated the passion he had for his work. Also, he included framing (That was not part of the sale) at no additional cost. Mr. Gola ensured that the packaging was excellent guaranteeing no issues in shipping. I will be closely watching other works from this artist.

Rory... I want to just thank you for the kind response. Every painting we do is not for everybody, but when we produce one that has an overwhelming response, it is very gratifying. I hope you and yours enjoy the piece for many years to come. Jim

Thank you, Jim, for the excellent communication, packaging and prompt delivery. Most of all thank you so much for this lovely painting. It is stunning! It was also considerate of you to suggest the type and size of frame. I will be checking often to see what new works you have listed.

Connie... Thank you so much for your kind remarks. I have a number of small format paintings hanging in inconspicuous places around my home and studio. I probably pay more attention to those little jewels by other artists than I do to my large paintings. I will have some other small format works going up on ArtFinder as I ready a new batch of work shortly. Watch for them and comment if you like, I value the comments on my viewers. Thanks again. Jim
