Impressionistic Pastoral Paintings by One of the Best, Tommy Thompson

April 1, 2010

Tommy Thompson was an architectural and commercial illustrator for more than 30 years before moving on to painting oil landscapes in 2003. He now concentrates on painting pastoral landscapes that include horses. His paintings are impressionistic in style and evoke a sense of peace.

Thompson has studied under some of the nation’s top painters including Kevin Macpherson, Ken Auster, Kenn Backhaus, Roger Dale Brown, John Budicin, Scott Christensen, Ned Mueller, Michael Shane Neal, Jason Saunders, and Dawn Whitelaw.

Now living near the banks of the Tennessee River in Florence, Alabama, Thompson receives inspiration for his plein-air landscape paintings from the natural surroundings.

    Thanks, Brian, for these kudos. We appreciate your fine support.

    I am very busy at present getting ready for a special exhibition that I was honored to be juried into at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. The exhibition titled “Saving Paradise,” will be conducted by the Leu Gallery of Belmont during June 1-August 5, 2010. I must complete all of my paintings by next week so that the curator of the exhibition can select the ones that she wishes to exhibit. Thirty-five artists submitted their work and only 13 were selected by the curator.

    Also, this Sunday my wife and I are invited to a reception for the special art exhibition at Energen Corporation in Birmingham, AL, called “Wonders of Alabama Art, 2010.” I was recently honored to be juried into that exhibition, which is the largest art exhibition in the state of Alabama. My painting, “Painted Trail,” which was selected for this exhibition, can be seen at this link:

    Next week my wife and I will be visiting the Nashville area to complete two oil painting commissions at a historic home in Franklin, TN. We will also be delivering paintings to a new gallery in Leiper’s Fork, TN (near Franklin) that plans to feature my oil paintings exclusively. In addition, while in the Nashville area, we have been asked to meet with the owners of a new gallery in Lexington, KY; they want to feature my horse paintings exclusively in their business.

    As you can see, my painting career is on a roll. Thanks for all of your encouragement.

    All the Best, Tommy Thompson
