Tom Mattox Art and Inspiration

I believe we all have an innate ability to be creative and express ourselves in ways that are satisfying. For me, this is painting. When I paint, I enter a realm of joy and possibility that is nourishing for me and, I hope, for others. Sharing my work feels like the last step in the artistic process. I offer paintings for sale, borrow, and sometimes as gifts! Check out my art gallery here.

Brassworks Annex Art Show

Through the end of September, I will be part of a group show at Brassworks Annex, 1127 SE 10th in Portland.

Abstract Painting Lessons

I offer individual Abstract Painting Lessons via Zoom or in person when possible. You can also take these lessons with a friend. Lessons are offered on a donation basis. Please use the contact form to get in touch.

In Abstract Painting, you aren't necessarily trying to represent something that you see or imagine. Instead you are exploring the interplay of colors, forms, lines, and shapes. The process can be very intuitive and what is created and discovered is often surprising and delightful. This is one art form that I believe anyone can do in a way that is satisfying. This is no end to what can be created.
