Art by Tomas
When I first began participating in the BlogDumps meme, Top Sites Tuesday, Tomas Karkalas was a regular participant. Regardless of the theme, Tomas would link to one of his digital paintings. Tomas was born in Lithuania in 1955, and according to his blog, he suffered a severe head trauma which left his with permanent disabilities, which, in his own words, he is learning to live with. Since English is not Tomas’ primary language, it sometimes takes effort to follow the prose that accompany his digital paintings. But it never takes effort to appreciate the paintings themselves.
I hadn’t thought about Tomas in a long time but he stopped by to comment on my post, Thinking About Thinking on Sunday, which led me back to his blog, Art by Tomas. If anything, his work has become more beautiful. Wandering around Art by Tomas is a feast for the eyes. Here are two of my favorites:
Please spend some time with Art by Tomas. Take a look at the slide shows, Last Glimpse and Picture Gallery. Jump over to his other blogs, Art Mirror and Tomas’ sketchbook. This is simply remarkable stuff that deserves your attention. And Tomas is a remarkable artist.
