“My paintings are records of the places I have been. I try to go “back there” in my mind when I paint these places later.” –Jim Bagley

The landscapes of Jim Bagley capture the beauty and simplicity of overlooked terrains and out of the way places with works that a spontaneous, “plein air” feel. Rendered masterfully in oil with color and form that emphasizes the dramatic relationship between the West’s open sky and the land, Jim travels to places most others would drive around or fly over or otherwise ignore. His intention is to reveal the beauty and magnificence of the undervalued or undiscovered landscape and allow the collector to share in the experience.

Bagley developed his love of nature while growing up in Oregon where he enjoyed sketching and drawing. Though he originally envisioned a career in fish and game management, his love of nature and art lead to college studies in graphic design and ultimately a career in advertising.

Today he resides in Durango, Colorado where his work is inspired by the endless beauty of the natural landscape. His work is included in major collections throughout the United States.
