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


…from an online photo that intrigued me – I'm pretty happy with this effort.  Blessings,  Jim


Another shot at the amazing and incredible ocean…what a gift to artists. Thanks for looking,  Jim


A little change of pace and probably overworked, but what the heck. Happy Mothers' Day to those of you who qualify, and blessings,   Jim


The obsession continues…compilation scene from a couple of different pictures.  Thanks for looking…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
