Featured Artist: Tom Christopher!

August Shade by Tom Christopher 20×16″ Pastel

Tom Christopher. I think his paintings are so interesting, I especially love the peeks of color and overall slight abstractness to this painting. Tom can really make pastels sing, can’t he? And, this is only one painting – be sure to check out the rest!

Tom Christopher – Artist’s Statement/Bio

Living in the Midwest has influenced my style of painting and choice of subject matter significantly. Many of my pieces depict very common scenes I have experienced.  As a child, I spent countless hours playing on the riverbanks and wooded areas in Central Iowa. Even today, I continue to be intrigued with nature and the way sunlight and shadows help define the landscape. I continue to spend my mornings  hiking and sketching the rugged landscape along the Iowa River near my home.   My goal is to paint relatively common scenes in a more dramatic and interesting way. Most of my finished works are the result of  reference photographs and on-location (plein-air) studies.
I have worked primarily in pastels and oil paints.  I plan to continue to explore these two mediums and look forward to many more years of painting and conducting workshops.
