The process of applying pigments to various substrates is of great interest to Tom. He loves to work and re-work paintings, scraping, layering, and cutting. Tom accepts flaws, erasures, and concealments as necessary. He employs chance. Tom uses traditional oils, industrial coatings, inks, lacquers, shellac, asphaltum, alkyd, acrylic, graphite, paper, canvas, and panel. The paintings’ forms and colors are abstracts of the landscape he lives in, yet he avoids including details that would imply a specific place. Tom portrays a sense of place through paint.
