Capturing the spirit of the Southwestern culture
beautifully painted...nice composition too!
Thanks Dana- I credit all of the wonderful Art Teachers I have ever had :>) I really enjoyed the exercise!
Really nice job on the boots - great composition. You have a lot of great paintings on your blog - very nice work!
Thank you for the compliments Edward! I can turn around and say the same things to YOU! :>) I am going to make an effort to contribute to Different Strokes on a frequent basis- it's good for the sole (pardon the bad pun). Have a great weekend! -Tom
Love your painting style and your rendering of the boots! Really enjoyed seeing the rest of your work as well!
Love your style and rendering of the boots! Really enjoyed the rest of the pieces on your blog as well!! Very talented!
Wonderful Boots!I'm so glad you did these because I found your blog through Karin's Different Strokes blog. Your artwork is stunning!
Absolutely wonderful! Who knew a painting of work boots could be moving!! Please contribute again-
Thank you all for the wonderful comments! You guys are helping me gear-up for my first commissioned piece. It's supposed to be a Christmas gift if I can get it done in time...I'll post it as soon as the cat is out of the bag. Thanks again for the encouragement- I really appreciate it! -Tom
Tom, welcome aboard. I love your take on this weeks challenge and the loose rough beauty of this piece is so in tune with the subject matter.
Tom, your colors are yummy, and the brush strokes are fantastic. I look forward to more of your style.
Dang, Tom. I go away for a few days and look what you come up with! Wonderful composition! The colors and brush strokes.. perfect.
A very emotional pair of boots! Great brushwork and harmony of colours
Thanks Vern, Alice & Adebanji! I am hoping it will stop snowing long enough for me to get a decent "portrait" photo for next weeks challenge! I may have to dig up something else...
Great piece and really nice brush work. The picture you have here seems great.
Your work is beautiful and you say so much with just a few brush strokes. I can only hope to do so well some day.
Douglas! Sorry I missed your comment (and THANK YOU)- I didn't get an email update?! Since last friday, I have been pulling together reference material and supplies for my first commissioned painting. It's the first painting I have done since June that isn't 7" x 5" or 6" x 6", which has meant bigger brushes, bigger bottles of stand oil, bigger puddles of paint, you get the idea :>) I have YOUR holiday guests here for the next 9 days- should be interesting to see how it all shakes out. Hope all is well with you!
Thank you Dominique & Eugenia!
I just had to see who the cowboy Alice Thompson was referring to on Akiko's portrait for DSFDF. Alice is right in saying you did paint a "fierce" pair of boots. I look forward to seeing much more of your work!
