Thomas captures a warm summer memory of a young boy playing in the surf. The boy stands out in the scene with his red surfboard, flanked by birds in the foreground and beachgoers of all ages in the distance. The water sweeps on shore in painterly strokes of warm and cool colors, reflecting the bright light. The painting carries a soft, memory-like quality.
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.
