Acclaimed painter, Thomas Darnell, is inspired by beauty and all of his art reflects the beauty of light, form and the essence of what he is trying to capture on canvas. ” I choose imagery that makes me feel centered and calm … what remains consistent in all my work is the light. It represents energy, spirit and forces we do not see but feel are there all the same..” Peonies Celebration is one of a series of paintings of peonies – and who doesn’t love the peony in all her majestic color and shapes!
