James Crandall. Beautiful paintings, many with inspiration from Lucca (Italy), his grandfather’s hometown. You can get a good feel of the city from his paintings. I love the way James captures everyday subjects like the two women talking above. The light is fabulous!
James shows his work here locally (Charleston, SC) at Reinert Fine Art – if you’re in the area pop in and check it out!

After a long career as a concept illustrator in the advertising and motion-picture industry, James Crandall has shifted his focus to traditional easel painting. He finds subject matter in everyday life, and is always looking for an intriguing play of light, or the unstaged gestures of people at work and at play. An ongoing series of paintings depicts life in his maternal grandfather’s hometown of Lucca in northern Tuscany, where he regularly visits. Recent work also includes scenes from the rural backroads of California’s Gold Country, where he and his wife Nancy make their home.
He is a Master Signature Member of the Oil Painters of America and a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society.
