Tom Bailey describes his style of painting as 'Inadvertently Impressionist." He paints primarily in pastels and oils and is known for his vibrant textures and bold mark-making.
“All my paintings start at places I’ve actually been,” explains Bailey. “Where they take me from there, however -- or where I take them -- is always an unplanned adventure.”
