I love the can of soup you've painted. You know exactly what brand of soup it is without all the detail. The brush strokes entice me ...

I'm new at oils, so I would love for you to share your information with us in a special blog entry.

'Shimmering' is Vangough-esque, and 'Mushroom' is a reminder that Andy Whorhall cared nothing about subject matter, be it Marilyn Monroe or food. The difference is that your work does not have that 'it's just a study' essense, thank God, what a relief, to see finished work. Student work is demanding. I get tired of having to wonder, "where is this going?" I get that feeling a lot when I look at some art websites. I was thinking today, when I had to stop short of finishing a watercolor, how much I hate unfinished studies. Then I showed it to someone and he was astonished by 'how beautiful,' so I said, "If you were an artist you would be dissapointed by how perplexingly incomplete it is." -Carol, I wish I had some good news on the home front, but Arianna is still sulking about having to put her dog down. She looks like a Borsoi, I am trying to get her to buy one. She might go with me to a case I have in LA superior court next month, it's a start, eventually I will get her to one of your classes, she is very very talented, and quite gorgeous. I sent her some art supplies today, but she isn't anwering her mail, for now.

Certainly the Impressionism not dying because excellent artists like you.
Opposed in all modernist trends and the uses of hightechs in these days. The good traditional use of the brush, canvas and pure color getback to us something of the common sense, so necessary in these days.
Great works Tom !! I like most the buildings views.
