Welcome to Steamy Windows…Where Inspiration Meets Imagination!
When the condensation develops on my window the real world is obscured by the haze.
I then draw with my finger a figure or figures on the condensation This has the effect of creating a negative and then by using my camera I capture these images before they fade back to vapour and light.
The difference between each image is determined by the weather and time of day. Nothing else is used.
These are then printed as a collection of limited edition images available for sale through my website and selected galleryies.

Jim studied figurative painting under Ian Gordon, on his return from the UK in 2001, opening his first solo show in The Harbour Bar, Downings, Co. Donegal, Ireland, in 2004. In this same year his work formed part of a collective exhibition at The Glebe Gallery, Churchill, on the site of Derek Hill's house and grounds.
Errigal Arts Festival 2006 featured Jim's painting in the Fleadh Ceoil international traditional music festival. Ramelton "Awash With Colour" at the Greer gallery featured Jim in a group show 2007, along with Clooney gallery Sligo. The Workhouse, Dunfanaghy in 2008 was host to Jim's next solo show, and also the Framemasters, Letterkenny that year, with the RNLI Arts exhibition, Greencastle.
