About

Jim McConlogue lives in Encinitas, California with his wife and three children. He paints with oil, both in plein-air and out of his home studio. Jim has studied life drawing, painting and illustration through the Corcoran School of Art and U.C.S.D. extension courses, The Athenaeum School of the Arts, St. Mary’s College, and a number of plein-air workshops.  

Jim is currently working on commissioned paintings, and his new original oils are being shown at the Leucadia Art Gallery and Corner Frame Shop in Leucadia, CA, Cassidy’s Interiors in Solana Beach, and Art in Framing in La Jolla, CA. He is also represented by J.G. Editions Fine Art Dealers who sell his large scale Giclée prints and original oils.

Jim has developed a following for his vintage travel posters and he is continually updating his portfolio of choices. See his collections of Encinitas, and Del Mar. He is also working on a State Parks series and others.

His work can be shown by appointment at his home studio, or a catalog of available paintings and Giclée prints can be sent via e-mail. Jim is available on a commission basis to paint images specifically designed for your home or office.

“I am drawn by the challenge of painting in oils and strive to
loosely yet accurately capture the beauty I see.
 
I consider myself a representational painter,
but one that is not afraid to show the unique character of oil paints.
Both thick and thin passages of oil combine 
to make a statement
of immediacy and confident brushwork. 
 
Each painting tells a story, and it is my goal to bring the viewer into that
story– to give them not only a sense of the place, but also an experience
of the time, energy, and beauty of that place.”
