TOM LUCAS THE BEST OF THE WEST
It is said that art is a statement of a current time and place. My art takes me to a past time and place, one filled with artifacts and history. Telling stories with my oils is an emotional journey that is a direct reflection of my life experiences. My desire to be a Western artist stems from my lifestyle as a cowboy, mountain man and outdoorsman. I have amassed a collection of Native American and cowboy artifacts and have acquired an unmatched working knowledge of the actual methods of ancestral tool making. These items and their history are subjects in my still life paintings, and the compositions are arranged as if I am telling a story.
