Paintings by James M. Lawless ASMA
SIGNATURE MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MARINE ARTISTS SINCE 2001
At the opening reception, Sept 14, 2019: Amy and I in front of the Channel Islands Maritime Museum in Oxnard CA where "Menemsha 251" hung for the second half of 2019 as part of ASMA's West Regional Expo. In its own right, this museum has a vast and interesting collection of Maritime history as well as an amazing collection of rare and valuable marine art. I was honored to hang in the same halls as John Stobart and a first class collection of the best in the world of marine art, both past and present.
One of my personal favorites this painting usually hangs in my living room. After being chosen for the West Regional in 2019, it was chosen to represent the best of ASMA in their prestigious National Exhibition! After the West Regional, it began a 2 year tour of 5 Maritime museums around the country with 100 other works by ASMA artists. This was my third entry chosen for this national event.

"DAVIS ISLAND YACHT CLUB ~
20" x 36"
This park bench has become my wife's and my favorite place to enjoy 3:00 coffee when visiting our daughter in Tampa, FL. The park sits along a bike path that curves around a small harbor ending at this very active and passionate sailing yacht club Besides sailors, this special place welcomes seabirds and water life of all kinds. It is not unusual to sit here and see a dolphin or two swim by as pelicans dive for fish between the vast array of sailboats both large and small. As if that weren't enough, small aircraft slide in and out of the airport whose runway ends a couple hundred yards behind your back.
