|Blue Vase Bouquet watercolor|
Having finished his palatial studio Tom had the itch to get to work, and get to work he did. All winter he slapped and slathered oil paint on previously stark white canvases. From an outsider’s point of view, watching Tom create a body of work is hard to describe.
|From sketch to watercolor.|
The best I can come up with is this: it’s like watching someone play thirty simultaneous chess matches while experimenting with pyrotechnics. While I went Stateside for the month of January to promote LilyO’s I had to leave Tom alone. In his studio. With lots of frozen pizzas, potato chips, cookies, Cheerios and, of course, his pyrotechnics. I returned to the spectacle of finding a whole new body of work that involved 1500 leaves of 23.5 karat gold leaf. Talk about fancy fireworks. Pardon my bias, but these new works are stunning.
