A bright summer day at the beach, with people lounging in the sun and under umbrellas, and children at play. The standing figure in the foreground draws the eye, and then the colorful umbrellas pull the viewer back into the scene, highlighting the mini-narratives. Thomas painted this scene looking down from a boardwalk, capturing a slightly elevated perspective with great depth of field. "Everyone loves a crowded beach day - the view is beautiful, the company is warm and the weather is dynamite!" exclaims Thomas. "The photos I used for this scene are universal, but they capture the emotions of excitement, comfort and anticipation that 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.
