artists statement

Art has been my life-long pursuit. I have worked in several mediums: clay, silver, encaustic and oil painting. My current works are oil paintings; some pleine aire landscape, some portrait and studio work of varying subject matter. I have continued to make art simply for the pleasure of seeing the creation and to satiate my own desire to make a beautiful mark.

I often sell my paintings and although I do not have a representative currently, some of the paintings are hanging for sale in my home town of Mount Vernon, WA at: ¬†Embellish, 511 So. 1st St, and Pacioni’s Resturant, 606 S 1st St. If you have a question or inquiry about the work you see, I can best be reached by email at:¬†tom@thpickett.com . Hope you enjoy my website.
