Recently, after looking through my book on Rene Magritte, I sat daydreaming and suddenly the idea for this image popped into my head. There is something apt about the cloud-bird on a greeting card emerging from an envelope. For me it is a metaphor for the delightful surprise in discovering art which can come to us through books, magazines, and greeting cards. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Tom

Thomas Miller turns his canvas into a time machine, bridging past and present. Inspired by still life and portrait paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Thomas mixes in touches of Modern Art. As time and technology march forward, Thomas sees art as the enduring expression of our shared human experience. Ever the history buff, Thomas enjoys referencing the great artists in his paintings - reinventing classic pieces by Vermeer or Ingres. Fun fact: Thomas spent 15 years traveling the world with the Mermaid Theatre as a designer and performer.
