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!

ART IS personal
Art is powerful. It is substance in relation to form. It evokes in us emotional energetic responses that defy rational interpretation. Tom's work embraces this energy. He appreciates aesthetic beauty and design elements but he is deeply inspired to create the emotion and exquisite unseen resonance.
Tom incorporates the harmony of energy in his paintings and works to envision the perfect pieces. When you commission Tom, he will paint three paintings - two based on your vision and one with his artistic vision. You purchase the painting that is most resonant with you.
Commissions allow Tom to address the functional reality of your space and to collaborate with you on the vision. If you desire to speak to an art patron that has collaborated with Tom and Anna please contact us for a reference.
We have met so many wonderful people over the years and gathered many stories.
Tom paints the natural world. Whether an ocean landscape or a human figure, he paints with an organic style. He exalts nature.
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 and 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.

Tom works extensively with entire designers on private residences and large commercial projects. Commission typically take 6 - 12 weeks from initial contact to delivery and installation. It is a very collaborative process, culminating in delivery and installation. Each painting has a certificate of authenticity that discusses the energy, intention, color palette and vision. Tom has painted as many as 100 paintings for a project and has a large studio and creative facility.
I paint the inspiration I receive for the space, the color and the composition that I envision.
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 luxury suites. The paintings 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.

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. It feels like the painting is very personal - a treasure. We love it.

I wanted to share with you that I saw your painting 'Belief'. It evoked so much emotion and had a feeling of deep profound peace. It felt like it was painted for me. I have had a year of such trials. It felt like light from heaven.

We were familiar with Tom's work and wanted to capture the magic of our trip to Tuscany. We loved working with Tom and Anna. They are wonderful and we have a stunning piece, a remnant of Italy!
Daniel and Simone Wilson, Art Clients
We have several of Tom's pieces. We had a unique space that was very bold. We wanted the art to compliment the design and add an element of nature. We commissioned an abstract of salmon in a stream with inlaid silver and gold. It was the perfect!
Ledger Law, Art Client
I had just lost my sister to cancer the month before we met Tom at the La Quinta Festival. I saw an abstract that was so compelling. The painting was titled Julia, her name. I was flooded with emotion.
Tamra Smith, Art Client
We had been looking for years for the right painting. We had a space that was both modern and rustic. The scale and energy of his work was exactly what we wanted. It is bold but beautiful and natural.
Daniel and Chris Wilson, Art Clients
The feel of Tom's art is so serene. His art felt inspired and of the heart. We worked with Essence Arts on the color palette of yellow and grey with hints of purple. It was the perfect choice for our waiting rooms. The paintings are beautiful and whimsical.
