West Palm Beach


Here's a watercolor sketch painted on location a couple of nights ago in West Palm Beach, Florida.

For those in south Florida, I'll be giving a digital slide presentation at 3:00 p.m. today at the Norton Museum of Art, followed by a booksigning. Hope to see you there. Bring the kids and bring your books to be signed. The signing is at 4:00 (there will be books and a poster available there, too).

beach towns are really addictive, especially to artists, i think because they are so visually awsome, be careful!!

or you will not be able to leave!!

It was great getting to meet you and your lovely wife in person! I'm going to be hanging my new signed Dinotopia poster in my art studio. :)
So happy that I was finally able to see some of your work in person!

I saw your show today Mr. Gurney. I think your work is brilliant and what a pleasure it was to meet you...Steve the art teacher and my buddy Stephen.

James Gurney said...

Hi, Steve and Steve and Rebecca--it was great to meet you today, and thanks everyone else for your kind words.

Here is Arthur Hastings (the gentleman from Agatha Christie's classic Hercule Poirot tales). Perhaps it's just me, but I still think that there's a resemblance!

We hope this wonderful art collection tours forever (so that you don't have to make room in your basement for it =:o). My grandson and I were delighted to finally meet you and your wife, and we wish you both a safe journey home.

I can't believe I missed your book signing, in my own home town. D: I've been so disappointed that I wouldn't get to see you at AnthroCon this year. I would have asked you if you would sign my copy of Dinotopia. I've had it since childhood and your art has been such an influence on me.

Are you doing anything else in Florida by chance?

James Gurney said...

Sorry to miss meeting you, Tiina, maybe another time!

And it was great to meet the rest of you. Rebecca, I think Mr. Hastings has a better hat than I do, but maybe he's a long lost relative.

Tiina Purin said...

Rats! Well I hope you had a good time in Florida and have a safe trip home. I'll be sure to stop in at the Norton this weekend to check out your lovely paintings. :)

I can't believe that with all of the costumes you have, you don't have a good fedora in the mix! Shame on you! :p
