Rabbit Brush
Oil on linen

Playing with light, brushstrokes, and texture in the style of an impressionist, Jim Morgan constantly searches for different ways to express the beauty he sees in nature. He seeks to attain only a few relatively simple goals in his art. He wants to enjoy the process of painting, while generating emotional participation from those who view his work. And, he tries to bring an awareness to others of the often-overlooked and intimate aspects of nature. Jim Morgan is the featured artist at the Steamboat Art Museum’s retrospective exhibition Moments In The Wild December 7, 2018 – April 13, 2019. Jim will have over 70 select paintings spanning his 40 year career included in this event. Morgan says, “The most important aspect of being an artist is being a keen observer. Nature’s ever changing moods are a wellspring of inspiration.”

Jim Morgan’s Rabbit Brush is currently on display at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The exhibition, Living Legends: Discovering the Masters of Wildlife Art, is on display through April 14, 2019. Each of the thirty-nine artists included in this show have played an important role over the years of the Museum’s development. The exhibition honors not only this relationship, but also highlights each artist’s ability to capture the essence of the Museum’s mission to collect the highest quality wildlife art.
