"Afternoon Hunt" 10 x 20 inch Oil on Canvas by Tommy Thompson
A great idea for a Father's Day gift is Tommy Thompson's "Afternoon Hunt," a 10" x 20" oil on canvas. Don't miss this one-of-a-kind creation at Laurel Leaf Gallery in Leiper's Fork, TN. Thompson paints every day, and collectors are wise to add this talented painter's works to their collection. Invest in great art rather than gold; you can enjoy artwork everyday as it enhances your life.
Although I have 30+ years of experience as an illustrator, I prefer painting traditional landscapes and portraits in oil. I have studied under master portrait artists, Daniel Greene, Michael Shane Neal, Dawn Whitelaw, and Casey Baugh. My experience in landscape painting has been enhanced through study with Ken Auster, Kenn Backhaus, Roger Dale Brown, John Budicin, Scott Christensen, Jeremy Doss, Paula Frizbe, Kevin Macpherson, Ned Mueller, and Jason Saunders. To broaden my knowledge and skills in art, I have studied the works and writings of John F. Carlson, Daniel Gerhartz, Charles Hawthorne, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Frank LaLumia, Edgar Payne, John Singer Sargent, Richard Schmid, and Andrew Wyeth. I participated in Kevin Macpherson's "En Plein Air Masters Chateau des Arts Mentor Series," in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I am represented by Loblolly Gallery, Columbia, TN. I belong to the Oil Painters of America, Landscape Artists International, the Portrait Society of America, and the Chestnut Group, a nonprofit alliance of landscape artists, Franklin, TN.
