"Summer Daze"

Tommy Thompson painted "Summer Daze" after studying daylilies in his garden. The landscape artist rarely ever does still life, but he had fun painting "with a broad brush" on this particular one. He felt that he was freer and more relaxed in doing this painting. After years as an illustrator where the artist must follow rigid guidelines to portray his subject with exacting details, it is a relief for the artist/painter to adapt a freer style.
