Two Views of "The Last Best Place", The Pastels of Jim Vincent & Jim LeBar

Jim Vincent is a retired cardiologist with a lifelong interest in art. Jim LeBar, a retired architect with a Fine Arts degree from Cornell, is an accomplished pastel artist with a long, distinguished career. LeBar is Vincent's mentor and they have been painting together for the past three years. Vincent's landscape work is impressionistic with a bold palette & an abstract twist. LeBar is a classical landscape painter known for his color harmony and timeless beauty.
