James ToenjesJim Toenjes has painted since the late 1970s. He began painting in watercolor and acrylic while working in California and Hawai’i as an archaeologist. After several years, he changed to oil, continuing to paint on location. In the mid 1990s he studied portraiture and composition under Jack Rowe in Palm Desert, California. Mr. Rowe, a student under Weyman Adams in New York before World War II, continued studies after the war at the Chicago Art Institute where he received his degree in fine art.

Previously of Palm Springs, California, Jim now divides his time between the southwestern states and Woodland, Washington where he has family and is a member of the Northwest Oil Painters’ Guild (NOPG). Jim paints entirely on location using a core palette of pure secondary colors, yellow, and white.
