Tom is a natural teacher who is especially intuitive in developing the student's own individual needs. For 25 years students from all over the world have attended his successful workshops and acclaimed them with high regard. When Tom speaks, he talks openly and candidly. His paintings have that same intensity, expression, and direct appeal.

Whether Tom Lynch's subjects be of secluded woods, a sparkling winter day, a turbulent sky or a serene lake, Tom has developed the skill to capture that essence on paper.
Tom Lynch is more than someone with a dream. "To acknowledge my dreams and give them validity, I take action," he explains. Always anticipating the next feeling, the next mood, the next intriguing subject, Tom has that special ability, shared by all great artists, to take an ordinary subject and bring out its extraordinary qualities, imbuing even the most humble subject with a quiet grandeur or robust majesty.
Perhaps it is in technique that Tom shows his greatest genius. Using several varieties of spray bottles, sometimes an electric eraser and always a lot of bravura, Tom lifts off and melts away the paint, producing the type of ethereal, light quality that is associated with the Old Masters. In Tom's books, TV series, tapes and workshops he taps into the creative process, prodding the creative instinct, gently pushing the student to explore and fulfill his or her own artistic abilities; many of whom have become successful professionals.

With Tom Lynch, painting is a passionate commitment to looking at and capturing a special experience from the landscape.
