Artist Keith Thomson creates multimedia art with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90's, an influence that manifested in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. In 2016, following his children's retirement from baseball, he stepped down as a little league coach. "This gave me an immense amount of free time, which promptly led me to pursue painting," shares Keith. His portfolio consists of social realism commentaries and presents scenarios with a surreal and sometimes ironic twist. He begins his work as digital sketches using animation software, then transfers them onto a surface before painting. He practices his art in the comfort of his kitchen, accompanied by oil paints, brushes, and a portable easel. His faithful golden retriever, Trouser, is always by his side and ends up with a streak of blue paint on its fur. Apart from painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.

A great conversation piece. Definitely captures a moment. Thank you!- G Bosgang
Absolutely love the painting that Keith created for me. I was looking to capture the spirit and excitement of this once-in-a-lifetime moment and Keith nailed it. Keith and the UGallery team made the entire experience easy and fun. I got regular updates and progress photos along the way.- T Gabbert
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.- D Anna
