About The Artwork

While in Lexington Tom studied the Arabian horse, light and medium blue for the dilated nostrils a lips, Nantucket red for the chestnut coat going into shadow with dark violet finally dark green. Experimenting with various hues and shades of the master color groupings Tom found himself always coming back to the main nine. Painting with blobs is reality. Composition and time of day establishes the painting. This new manner cannot change the situation. The gross manner lends itself to familiarity. The visceral manner guided by natural illustration makes everyone there. Each stroke takes on more significance. Reality reduced to something a printer would do but when the artist reduces the scene to a few blobs that still have the scene then now that’s painting. Each round edged blob means more. The blob represents the reality of painting in the classical manner. Strike while the iron is hot. Do when ready to paint. Finished June 4, 2012, 5" x 7" x .125” x 2 oz., Oil pastel on melted on Plexiglas. Framed in a Neapolitan style simulated gold leaf over clay over wood with no seam in corners weighing 2 pounds. Shipped in a box 15" x 12" x 4" weighing 3 pounds. Work can be purchase without the frame shipped in 15" x 12" x 4" box weighing 2 pounds. Packing and shipping fees to be determined. Painting can be picked up in Cincinnati for free or delivered by the artist within a two hundred mile radius for a determined fee. Brief History of the Artist/Scientist Tom Lohre learned by working in the studio of master portrait painter Ralph Wolf Cowan. Searching for new subjects, he painted the eruption of Mount Saint Helens while it erupted from life, twenty miles to the south on Tum Tum Mountain. He also painted the first space shuttle from life, 200 'feet from it, under armed guard, the day before to took off. Tom invented a painting technique melting oil pastels on metal by heating the metal. Once cooled the work will stay in place unless heated to 255 degrees, at 155 degrees you can manipulate the oil pastel without having the oil pastel move towards gravity. Run warm water over to clean, do not rub or brush, let dry and replace in frame. Do not touch the surface. The work should last for hundreds if not thousands of years if undisturbed not heated above 175 F and lit by indirect light.
