Meet Joe Thomas at Studios at the Park

RadisavljevicI have been in Joe Thomas' art studio at Studios on the Park before, but couldn't resist another visit when I came through during the Paso ArtsFest. Those huge pictures in bold colors jump out at me to the point where I just want to jump inside them. This first photo shows the entrance to the studio that lures people in.

As I look at Joe's paintings that are larger than life, I can't help but wish he'd illustrate a children's book. They are the sort of pictures children would pour over, and they beg for a story. Here are more of them.

How about it, Joe? Will you write a book? Or at least illustrate one?
