Jim Rehak captures the seasonal changes of the Delmarva Peninsula through landscape paintings. He explains what inspires him: "My enthusiasm for plein air, or open air landscape, takes me outside to paint fields, marshes, farms, rivers and bays throughout the area. My interest in art started with comic book illustration at an early age. It was while studying for my BFA at the Maryland Institute of Art that an interest in oil painting emerged." Art has always been a vocation for Jim – as a portrait and caricature artist in Ocean City during college, art director at a sign company, teacher and freelance court illustrator. He is featured in 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic by Gary Pendleton.
