About TomLeeM / Big Goofy Guy - the artist
I saw a photo of a glen and thought it would make for a great painting. This is the painting that resulted from it.
I liked doing paintings of flowers. I did this one using a photo of red roses. It took awhile to get it just right. As an artist, I keep thinking it could be better but I decided that this is where it is completed and did no more on it.
Here is a painting of a stream through some a small valley. It is based on a photo I saw in a calendar. It was a challenge to do. It was fun to do. I like the results.

I have taken art classes for most of the time I was in school. It was something I really enjoyed. When I graduated high school, I did not do much with it.
As an adult, I joined an adult education class my dad was in. We went to class together. It was a lot of fun. I still have a lot of the art that my Dad had created. I still have most of mine (some were sold and one was exchanged for a bag of sugar free cookies [it was a painting of a field of sunflowers - it came out quite well and she enjoyed it]).
I have not done much after my Dad had passed away. I am planning on getting back into doing some painting; not just oils but also acrylic and water color and some pen and ink.
I have taken photos of my art and uploaded them to Cafe Press and have open a store there with my art on different items. One can purchase my art this way. I need to improve the photos (higher density) so it looks better on the items they are printed on. My Cafe Press Store http://www.cafepress.com/tomleem
I saw this in a calendar. It looked really nice. I wondered how it would look as a painting. I think it came out better than I had expected.
The above is just a small sampling of what I have completed. I will be doing more in the future. There is some art work that I don't have any photos to (some sold to friends at a low price [according to some]).
