A lot of the abstract paintings now arrive in series. One image just flows to another in what seems to me to be a logical sequence. Sometimes the work is deliberate and sometimes it takes on a life of its own and I just follow along. I have hundreds of images just waiting to escape from my brain. The work is both symbolic and moody and sometimes just fun and quirky. I use Liquitex and Golden paints.
I sell my work to people people mostly over the internet. I’ve traded abstract paintings with my vet, sold them over the web – which is strange because sometimes I never meet the buyer or talk to them – and sold them through various galleries and shows. The work seems to connect with a very diverse number of people.

Jim Fuess works with liquid acrylic paint on canvas. Most of his paintings are abstract, but there are recognizable forms and faces in a number of the abstract paintings. He is striving for grace and fluidity, movement and balance. He likes color and believes that beauty can be an artistic goal. There is whimsy, fear, energy, movement, fun and dread in his abstract paintings. A lot of his abstract paintings are anthropomorphic. The shapes seem familiar. The faces are real. The gestures and movements are recognizable. More of his abstract paintings, both in color and black and white, may be seen at www.jimfuessart.com
