My Uncle Jim does not talk much. He is always painting when be is at home. He paints after work and on weekends. Painting is his best friend and his life.

Uncle Jim does not paint for money; he has never sold any of his pictures. There are no people in his pictures. He only draws trees and mountains, but they are not like the ones we see in the real world. They have strange shapes and colors. I do not quite understand Uncle Jim's pictures, and he never tells us what he is trying to say with them. But I still like them a lot. To me, Uncle Jim has created a different but interesting world.
