"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.
Tommy Thompson has recorded for posterity the main streets of small town America. Thompson has more than 35 years’ experience in art, photography, printing, and marketing. The native Mississippian studied commercial art at Mississippi State University, where he also supervised the art and photography division of the Mississippi Agricultural Experiment Station. Thompson began his unique graphic arts business in 1984, and since that time he and his daughters Michelle and Melanie have produced composite drawings of more than 300 towns in 12 states across the South. Struck by the pride of older Americans in the heritage of their towns, Thompson has transformed glimpses of the past found in old, faded photographs and memories into composite drawings.
In 2002 Thompson advanced to painting oil landscapes that include horses, figures, and architecture. His paintings are a blend of realism and impressionism. To see his oil paintings, check out http://www.tommythompsonart.com.
