Additional Paintings by Artist/Student Jim Herman

Jim Herman is not only a student taught by Barb Dickerson, he is also an author of five books.  For more information on his books and extensive ancestral research please visit his WEB sites:


     During the past sixteen years of retirement, my "golden years" have been consumed with as much time with my spouse Judy Herman and my immediate family-especially my four grandchildren.  I do find time to play tennis and golf as well as substitute teaching high school for two years.  The remainder of my time was spent writing five novellas, or short novels.  This past few years a new opportunity opened for me........

    Browsing through Hobby Lobby Judy and I wandered into the Hobby Lobby Classroom.  This was February 2013.  It was here I met some of the most interesting people, and the classroom Artist/Teacher, Barbara Dickerson.   Within two weeks Barbara agreed to take us both on as students although I had little, well, no artistic ability whatsoever.  Judy had, on and off over the years, drew pictures and some watercolor painting.

     Needless to say these past few years have been some of the most entertaining and enlightened  times of my life!  I can paint with oils!  Barbara has been very patient with me and encourages me to push forward.  I am indeed fortunate to be a student of such a well known and versatile artist like Barbara Dickerson !  Thanks Barb!
