Two pelicans perch on an outcrop near shore. A gradient overcast sky of grey and purple accentuates the birds' plumage, a light breeze passes by. Gentle reflections in the water offer depth. "Are these two lovely waterbirds working together to secure a meal, or perhaps just enjoying each other's company within a serene setting?" asks Thomas.
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.
