A red kite sails high above a row of brownstones in the soft glow of evening light. "'Kites rise highest against the wind - not with it,' said Winston Churchill, perhaps providing the inspiration to the subject of this painting, who had been longing to fly his new kite in Prospect Park, but was confined by quarantine to his family's 650-square-foot, fourth-floor apartment," jokes artist Keith Thomson.

Keith Thomson

Birmingham, Alabama

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.

This piece reflected much of the past year, 2020, to me. In it I saw an individual stopping briefly to do what is needed to keep going through the darkness. Its simple and powerful in that regard, I suppose that's the power of art.
