A young boy stands at the edge of dock, looking out to the expansive ocean. Warm light shines across the figure. A simple, charming piece that may also suggest adventures ahead or a bright future. "We've all been here before, contemplating what kind of creative jump we are about to attempt," says Thomas. "Or is he thinking about something more important?"
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.
