My husband and I purchased one of your beautiful paintings today in Bend. We are both so delighted with it and are having a hard time doing much else but gazing at it. It seems to be alive as the light changes throughout the day! Thank you for creating such joy!

Make it personal
Art is a powerful vessel. It is substance in relation to form. It evokes in us powerful responses that defy rational interpretation. Tom's work embraces this. He greatly appreciates aesthetic and lives deeply inspired to create an environment that draws forth emotion.
He incorporates the harmony of energy in his paintings and works with you to envision the perfect piece. When you commission Tom, he will paint two paintings - one based on your vision and one with his artistic vision. You are able to purchase either painting or both.
Commissions allow Tom to address the reality of your space and to collaborate with you on the creation. Tom's clients and patrons often refer to his historic portfolio for their inspiration.
I share with my clients that art doesn't need to match your decor to work. There is a balance of subject, color and texture that inherently works or doesn't work in a space. Sometimes I want a piece to stand alone and really grab your attention and sometimes I simply want to emote a feeling.

I purchased Tom's paintings for the Tetherow Golf Club Event Pavilion and the Resort Lobby. Tom's work celebrates nature and our area has exquisite natural beauty. His use of color and light is exceptional. He is able to offer diverse paintings for a variety of spaces.

Art has a critical role in hospital environments. Tom's art enhances the space with beauty and depth, providing a distraction from reality.

We commissioned Tom to paint a sunrise with vibrant colors for our 24 luxury suites. The paintings (24 triptychs) were delivered and installed on schedule. We subsequently purchased several large paintings for the lobby. His use of colors and texture is unique and powerful.

Tom met with a couple in Sausalito who commissioned a large vertical painting of a female figure. Their color palette was cool with prominent blues and bright color accents and their fixtures were silver. Four mica metallic powders were incorporated in the paint (nu silver, pearl, custom silver and magna silver) to capture the diffuse light from the couple's expansive windows with subtle light refraction. The balance of white space was critical. Tom was able to deliver a painting to perfectly compliment the environment.
Tom is able to produce a painting that aligns with your vision and space. He has a well rehearsed methodology allowing him to align each client's aesthetic and energetic vision with their commissioned art. Tom defines the composition, technique and color palette, and then figures out what canvas size is appropriate, whether a single canvas, diptych or triptych.
The process is facilitated from initial conversation to delivery and installation, monitoring progress and facilitating modifications. He ensures that you are aligned with the project design and if appropriate, corporate brand image. The process is as as critical as the product. Tom will collaborate to create an environment that resonates with your intention, enhancing the space with fine art.
Collaboration can be on site if you are local to the Puget Sound area in Washington State. You may also arrange to fly Tom to your location to view your space or he will work remotely with you using the technology of internet conferencing.
Time and time again I turn to the artwork of Tom Boatright for my clients individual needs. I have found that his variety of scale, color and composition works in homes from contemporary to traditional. He offers such an extensive range that delights and enhances the overall feel of a room.

We had purchased Tom's paintings in the Coachella Valley. We love his work and decided to commission him to paint an abstract - the sea floor from our sailboat through a series of remote sessions. It feels like the painting is very personal - like we collaborated on a treasure. We love it.

I wanted to share with you that I saw an image of your painting 'Belief' and had a pretty crazy reaction to it. I started bawling and couldn't stop. It evoked so many emotions; pain, fear, hope, bittersweet joy, and relief. It made me think of determination, wounds, healing. I don't know how to explain it or why it happened.
