An example of fine art by Jim Horsley

Living in the cowboy country of Central Oregon, my passion for learning, determination and unwillingness to accept anything less than my best have helped guide me through the constant challenges of creating meaningful art.  These traits were key to my success as a Blue Angel demonstration pilot…the focus, practice, and dedication so necessary in aviation are now being translated into my approach to art.
Immersing myself in the beauty and complexity of life through oil painting is teaching me to see at a much deeper level. It engages my heart and mind in portraying the creative essence of the "story" to the viewer through my distinct representational style paintings of the American West. 
In the past few years I’ve developed a growing following through commissioned paintings and sales to collectors throughout the western states. I've participated in prior Wallowa Valley Art Festivals including local Joseph Quick Draw events, and been juried into a variety of regional art shows receiving merit and people’s choice awards. I am currently represented by Kelly Wick's Gallery in Joseph, OR. and Dyrk Godby's Western Art Gallery in Sisters, OR.
