“My desire is to share the joy of painting with others as a way to relax, escape, express, and build confidence. I hope to reach individuals that have the desire to learn this colorful, flexible, long lasting medium. My subject matter is something I call Tropical Expressions. These are images of tranquil oceans and lush terrain filled with brilliant, translucent colors. These are places I have seen or wish to be. As you paint you connect with the image and get lost in a state of wonderment. I want to share this magical experience with my students and people who view my artwork.”

Tom Anderson has turned his school over to the capable hands of noted artist Kathy McCartney. Most of you are aware that Tom Anderson and Linda moved December 2008 — we will miss them immensely! As one of Tom’s students, you are invited to continue your art education with Kathy a former student of Tom Anderson’s. She will sustain the fine tradition of instruction that Tom has provided, but in a different location.
