I've always loved to paint. Ever since I was a little child. I can remember my Mother saying, 'Connie's going to be our artist!' I guess I was so particular and took such pride in my color books and painting books. I've always been fascinated with color and the things you can do with it and the effects you can get out of it. I hope with my paintings I can take you to a place that will let you feel calm, serene, happy, peaceful, joyful and love and all the beautifulness of nature.
Having done many indepth studies of the original and revered Hudson River School master artists and their philosophies, she now incorporates the techniques she learned into her present day subject matter. As with them, so with her...light, color mood and atmosphere are of major importance in her work, Connie is fast becoming known for her luministic landscapes. She capitalizes on sunrises and sunsets. Autumn with all its joyful, warm and luscious colors is her favourite season to paint. Her faith plays a big part in her life and in her art.
Her work has been in the Limited Edition Art Shoppers Guide of Southwest Art Magazine. She has taught many national seminars and authored four painting instruction books. She has painted in oils for over 20 years and has exhibited in such prestigious shows as The Western and Wildlife Art Collectors Exhibit In Minneapolis, MN and the Richard Schmid Fine Art Auction. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America and the NOAPS (National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society). Her paintings are in many private and corporate collections, both nationally and internationally and are sold at fine art auctions and from her website and blog. You can see more of her art at www.connietom.com.
I hope you enjoy the paintings and your comments are very welcome. Comments are how all of us on FAA know if what we offer is enjoyed by others.
Her goals and desires are to always improve and perfect the talents and gifts she has been given. To create a legacy of beautiful paintings that will not only be uplifting to the viewers, but will bring a message to the spirit... beyond just the subject matter, and bring glory and honor to God through her art.
