A Bend in the River

A bend in the river, oil painting by Tom Wheeler

40x16" Oil on Canvas. 

There's this particular bend in the river that I've had my eye on.  I always thought it needed to be captured, glad I finally got to it!  This one took a while to finish, as I was pulled away right in the middle to attend to other business.  But, I think it's about completed - at least as far as I wish to take it.

Daybreak at Sunset

sunset painting by tom wheeler

Oil on Canvas, 40x30" 

A totally different color scheme for me! I've been thinking about clouds lately.  When I saw this sunset a couple weeks ago I decided to give it a shot.  At first, throwing down those intense oranges and yellows, I wasn't sure it was going to work out - my pallete is generally a lot more restrained.. but I think it worked out pretty well.


Shoreline painting, east fork Lewis river

Oil on Canvas - 12x24".  Completed Jun 16, 2013.  SOLD. This is another painting of the East Fork of the Lewis River, near our home in Washington (pacific northwest).  Here I'm trying to stay loose, but not too loose - I'm working to strike the right balance between level of detail and still acheive a good painterly quality.

Eli at the Creek

Eli at the Creek, Painted by Tom Wheeler

Oil on Canvas, 15x30in  Sold

This is a painting of my son, Eli - playing in the river near our home.

This painting won 3rd Honorable Mention in the American Artists Magazine & Utrecht Art Supplies Annual Art Competition in 2010.  I was pretty excited about this - I found out there were over 5000 entries, and only 18 artists won awards.   Here's a link to the winners page.

Morning on the East Fork

East Fork of the Lewis River, Southwest Washington - Painting by Thomas Wheeler

Oil on Canvas,  2.5' x 3'  Sold

I was playing around with a wide angle camera lens at the river one day, and took a shot with the beautiful morning light coming through.  In the painting I decided to push the colors in the rocks a little further, just to see how that felt.  This painting was sold through the Columbia River Gallery in Troutdale Oregon.
