About Jim Karjala

I'm a retired English teacher - all levels - Navy vet, father, husband, grandfather, writer, surfer, and aspiring watercolorist. I realize I have a long way to go on the last, but I'm working every day to get better; the other things in the queue, I've been blessed, and I know it. Thanks to all of the artists for the inspiration, and, at times, the daunting task of measuring up. God bless. Jim

I'm obsessed with the sea; living at the coast, of course, feeds the obsession. And, being an old surfer contributes, too. Thanks for looking.   Jim

Quick little watercolor sketch; I'm working on my patience, but I still like to roll with the punches and see what happens. Blessings, Jim
