CHICAGO CLOUD GATE LANDMARK SCULPTURE by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this 8x10 inch Original Oil Painting on canvas.
     I’ve wanted to paint this for years and finally got the opportunity. I have always loved the shiny chrome-like surface and the way it reflects Chicago’s famous skyline and the clouds above.
     “Cloud Gate” is a 110-ton elliptical sculpture forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates inspired by liquid mercury.
     Beneath the sculpture is a 12-foot-high arch which forms a “gate” to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture. It provides an invitation to visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives. The sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high.
     This painting will become a memorable keepsake for anyone who has experienced this stunning sculpture in person, and it will add a touch of color and life to any room. Enjoy it, and thanks for stopping to look. Questions or comments? Email me here: tombrownstudio@cox.net
Good paintings at good prices for good people.

ANCIENT TREE by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE for this 8x6 inch Original Oil Painting
     I was fascinated by the texture of the weathered bark and the twisted limbs and branches of this old tree.
     This painting is more detailed than most of my paintings, but this particular subject required it in order to capture the effects that interested me.
     For this one I also used colors that were more subtle and subdued than many of the plein air paintings that my collectors are familiar with.
     I think you’ll really enjoy this one on your walls. Thanks for looking.

CAPTURING THE MOMENT IN PLEIN AIR by TOM BROWN

Click HERE for this 5x7 Plein Air oil painting.
Nothing captures the moment like a painting done outdoors on the spot, working directly from Nature's inspiration. That is called "Plein Air" painting, which is French for "done in the open air." Sometimes I want to do a field study like this on the spur of the moment.
     Often there isn't a place to sit down. So I've devised the hands-free sketch kit shown in the photo below, which I can use even when standing. The beauty of this kit is that I don't need an easel to set it up; I can use it standing in a field if I want to.
     And it's small enough to carry anywhere; it even has a handy shoulder-strap, and all my gear is packed inside: paints, brushes, wet palette, even my freshly-painted masterpiece!
     It was great fun painting this one, and I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thanks for looking.
