A woman walks across the grassy dunes to the white sand beach on a bright summer afternoon. Beyond, adults lounge in the sun while children play in the sand and water. Thomas carefully arranged the composition so the eye moves in zigzagging diagonals to the distant jetty, allowing the viewer to absorb each mini-narrative in the scene. "Everyone loves a crowded beach day, and this painting brings the feelings associated with that to life," says Thomas. "The photos I used for this scene are universal, but they capture the emotions of excitement, comfort and anticipation that arriving to a perfect beach day elicits."
Artist Tom Manziano transports us to delightful moments in Florida with his vivid coastal and golf inspired paintings. As a retired member of the Professional Golfers' Association, as well as a self-taught artist, Tom found a way to unite his passions with the goal of making people smile. "In my mid-forties, I decided to follow my passion for art and eagerly began pursuing a second career as an artist," explains Tom. "My paintings all share an emphasis on rich and vibrant color, fine brushwork, strong light and shadow." Tom enjoys listening to soft music, including Father John Misty, The Growlers and Arvo Part to inspire his creative process. In his free time, he golfs, plays guitar, writes and hikes, along with other health conscious activities. Tom regularly exhibits his artwork in Florida.
