This is a fantastic opportunity for all of you who are not able to take his workshop so don’t miss it.
With his uniquely styled landscape paintings, he strives for a level of excitement, movement and resonance that seems to push somewhere beyond what the environment naturally provides. When considering subjects he tries to search for something striking; like the color of the sky, the direction of natural light, pattern of shadows, or the glint of sunlight on water. He then embellishes those striking features.
Lynch hopes that by accentuating those things that are sometimes easy to miss, he can provoke viewers to … “Have something to think about, not just something to see”. Each painting Tom creates can be seen as special. “I feel it’s the job of the artist to bring to the viewer the best of what can be found in the landscape along with a little creativity or exaggeration … normal and ordinary are not for me.”
