Jim Dick is a Montana artist in the truest sense. He is a Montana resident, born and raised by Montana natives. His paintings are of Montana landscapes done in rich oils.|
Born in Glasgow, Montana during the notorious winter of 1949 to a family of wheat farmers, he learned how to work hard. As a teen he enjoyed experimenting with drawing and painting on his own, but eventually earned a more practical degree in Business and Finance from Fresno Pacific College. After graduation and 2 years of business experience, he went back to his art endeavors and found them most fulfilling.
His strong work ethic has served him well as he spends as many hours painting in a day as light will allow. As he worked, he learned from painting with other artists and he read everything he could find concerning oil painting of landscapes. Painting outdoors, though, has been his most valuable teacher. He enjoys the challenge to reproduce true color, value progressions and emotional light variations seen in Creation. All of his paintings begin with a plein air field study done on location.
For over twelve years Jim and his family lived in a small cabin on sixty remote acres of the Tobacco Root Mountains in Madison County. During that time, the popularity of his art has grown as he has been featured at the Museum of the Rockies, the Hole in the Wall Galleries of Ennis and Big Sky, and Montana Trails Gallery of Bozeman. In October of 1992, Jim, Dayle and their two daughters moved to an acreage on Thorpe Road near the Gallatin River. There they have built a log home with a studio and are advertising his work in Montana Magazine. His work is known across the nation and collected by those who love Montana’s natural beauty.
