TOM BROWN CANYON LANDSCAPE



"SHARING THE MOMENT"
5x7 INCH ORIGINAL
OIL PAINTING BY TOM BROWN


Ever notice how an experience is richer when you share it with someone else?
(Like, “This is delicious; taste it.” Or, “Read this; it’s really funny.”)

I guess that’s why I paint. To reach out and connect with someone else; to share my experience of life. It’s one of the reasons anyway.

Every painting is a hunt, a chase. It’s an attempt to capture something unique, something of value. To give solid form to a fuzzy observation or feeling. And share it with someone else. It’s a way to complete an experience.

How can I witness a dramatic setting like this and not share it? That’s what this painting was all about.

I was able to shoot a photo, too. (In the photo you can see a friend who was with me.) But the camera doesn’t always see the world the way I do. So I put my view of it into this painting.

Hope you can relate. If so, enjoy. And have a colorful day.

Love the contrast in warm and cool colors. Also the great texture with the palette knife.
