Tom Tartaglino

Although I am an art school graduate, my training and experience come from a lifetime love of painting.  Art school gave me helpful hints.  My inspiration for a work of art usually happens while observing a scene many times.  The scene will draw me in and I start to see what it is I am attracted to.  I will try to capture a psychological truth about my subject, which I see in plein aire impressionism, but I will be looking for subtleties that an impressionistic handling would miss. Through close observation, I concentrate on the details that make it realistic and truthful.  When complete, it will be about something beyond the scene.  It will have a depiction of a physical person or place, but carry a mood we all identify with.
