Jim Waid is known for his bold, vividly-hued acrylic paintings inspired by landscapes of the desert Southwest.  His use of spontaneous, gesturing strokes combined with a controlled manipulation of the paint, using both paintbrush and palette knife, creates vivid, highly textured surfaces.  By scraping through thick layers of acrylic to reveal bright, smooth colors underneath, he plays with depth and the illusion of landscape.
