March: Featured Artist Month ~ Tom Pickle

Tom Pickle is recognized as the talented creator of realistic watercolor marine scenes. He believes in
approaching a painting by learning all he can about the subject, then forgetting most of it. He says that the fun in watercolor is that it makes you
think backward.
