Colorado native, Tom Lockhart, was born and raised in Monte Vista, the heart of the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado.  Tom’s love for nature and the outdoors is evident in his paintings.  Striving to convey a feeling of light and atmosphere is always a challenge for any artist but for Tom it is even more challenging because he works in oils, pastels, and watercolors.  Tom looks to the Old Masters and great painters of the late 19th and early 20th century for inspiration in his own work.  “I am striving for a balance between traditional representational painting and impressionism.  I feel that texture and variation of paint application along with solid design and drawing make for a stronger presentation.”

 

He relishes the opportunity to paint landscapes from life.  “The outdoors is our greatest teacher. One should never take for granted the beauty of nature and especially our great country. We are truly blessed to live and work in freedom.” 

Tom's painting was featured on the cover of Southwest Art Magazine in February 2006
