About

Balloons in Doorway Oil painting by James Biggers 16x12" image size, 22x18" framed, gilt frame A street scene in Europe showing a balloon vendor in an ancient archway surrounded by tourists. ABOUT THE ARTIST: Biggers looks at the world with a different eye. He looks for more than merely seeing the natural beauty of a scene. He tries to find the emotions that are tied up within a subject and portray those in his paintings. It is through the heart of the painting that he makes the emotional connection with viewer that he feels is essential in great art. Born in Kansas, he graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from Central State University in Oklahoma. Biggers credits most of his formal art training from individuals he has studied with. He has studied with Richard Schmid and has traveled extensively throughout the western United States, Alaska, Europe, Central America, Hawaii and Mexico. He has participated in juried exhibitions from Connecticut to California, and has been featured in American Artist, Revue Magazine and Southwest Art. Today he lives and paints in Estes Park, Colorado. While in the process of developing his technical painting skills, Biggers discovered something else essential to art, and impossible to teach. He calls it the "heart" of the painting. "At some point, you have to put something of yourself into your painting, and until you do that, you’ll never have a great painting." It’s the heart of the painting that James strives to portray. He uses the skills he has developed over the years to bring this essence to life. And while he realizes the importance of proper form, he also firmly believes that great techniques don’t always make a great painting. "Technique is what gets people to walk up to your painting; heart is what keeps them there." "Working from nature as well as from the model in the studio is a very important method of painting for me. Travel not only introduces new subjects, but causes one to look at old subjects in a new and different way. Painting from life is always exciting, always new, seeing something different each time." -Jim Biggers
