TEXTING MOM by TOM BROWN

 Click HERE (4x6 in. Oil painting on heavyweight Bristol paper – starts at $20)
I couldn’t resist sketching this character when I spotted him in a local coffee shop. This is another one that began with a simple quick pencil sketch. Which I then painted over with oils. And I’m glad I did it that way, because he left before the painting was finished. I never had the chance to talk with him, but for all I know he could have simply been texting his Mom. Which gave me the idea for the title I gave this one. Anyway, thanks for stopping to look. I hope you like this and I hope you hear from someone today who brightens your day.

AUTUMN LEAVES by TOM BROWN

 I love the smell of autumn leaves, don’t you? And the sounds they make when you crunch through them. For me it brings back childhood memories of rolling around in colorful plies of them. And painting this picture brought back those same memories. I hope you have some fond memories like that too. And I wish you a happy day making new memories. Thanks for stopping to look.

MALE FIGURATIVE SKETCH by TOM BROWN

 Click HERE (Oil study on paper)
Do you ever doodle just for the fun of it? I do. That’s how this one came to life. I was simply amusing myself by sketching from a photo on a notepad. Before I knew it I began putting a touch of color to it. And from there it took on a life of its own. When I saw the final results I decided to share it here. This is an oil painting done over a pencil sketch on 8.5x11 inch notepaper. Hope you like it. And thanks for stopping to look.
