Storm Surge 1911


Jim beautifully captures Charleston’s Hurricane of 1911 as the rough waters of the harbor take a tall ship. Ironically Jim painted this image early in 2017 before the Summer storm surge event from Hurricane Irma!! This is similar to when he painted “Storm Warnings” back in 1988 followed by Hurricane Hugo the following year – his inspiration for the night painting: “The Storm”, 1989.

View a few of the historical photos Jim used while creating his painting here and this is a great read from the Preservation Society of Charleston describing the Hurricane of 1911 – Click here to read

This was Jim’s last painting / print release prior to his retirement and the closing of his retail gallery and frame shop in 2018.
