"Simply the best tropical watercolor artist out there!"

Make sure you are familiar with Jim Holehouse and his art work.  Holehouse paints the tropics. . . opening a window allows you to experience the wind and deep blue skies. . . palm trees transfixed in a timeless blaze of colors. . .of waves, sometimes gentle and relaxing, sometimes restless and inviting.

From The Cover...

"I'm not the kind of person that blends in. If you let me into your house,
I'm going to change the room,"
states the 2002 poster artist, tropical watercolor
specialist, Jim Gerard Holehouse.

Indeed, Jim Gerard Holehouse is an artist of a different color and when you step
into his gallery you have stepped into a tropical paradise.

The picture you just conjured up is hanging in his gallery.

Utilizing a technique known as "remarque," where the life of the painting spills over onto the matting that is carved to receive a flowing effect. Holehouse has created one-of-a-kind watercolor masterpieces that challenge your mind's imagination. His work is not for the faint of color.

Holehouse has been creating tropical and
Caribbean works of art for over 30 years; a
career that includes an eighteen-year run
at the Tropic Art Design Gallery located in
the Belz outlet mall in Orlando before upgrading to his
current location on Exchange Drive
eight years ago. Hailing from the not-
so-tropical state of Ohio, Holehouse
migrated to the south purposely to
indulge himself and his art in the
beauty and warmth of Florida.

Yes, he paints palm trees, beachfronts, villas, boating towns and all the beautiful scenes that make our home, Florida, the beauty that it is, from Key West to Saint Augustine.   He also paints glorious portraits of similar sensations from around the world. "I look for an excuse to use color," says Holehouse. "I'm enraptured with color and delighted with its nuances," he adds.  As we enter art festival season, Holehouse will be making his rounds at various shows such as the Downtown St. Pete Beach Art Festival and St. Stephens Art and Craft show, all in February, the Artfest by the Sea in Jupiter, the Naples Downtown Art Fair, Melbourne Art Festival and Sunfest in West Palm Beach from March thru May, 2002. Should you want a little more intimate setting to experience Jim's artwork, his brother John also makes house calls.

He says he gladly offers in-home consultation so that potential buyers can make decisions in the comfort and privacy of their own home.

Go to for an immediate sampling of his work, or better yet, visit his gallery located at 8256 Exchange Drive, Suite 228, Orlando.
