Original Oil ''Snow'' - Tom Holt. Free-spirited by nature, Cliff/Silver City, NM artist Tom Holt has spent the better part of his life sampling the natural beauty of the American West, finding joy and serenity in sharing his vision, via paintbrush and canvas, with the world. He loves the Gila Wilderness. Wayne Usrey, owner of Studio W in Ruidoso, New Mexico, relates that, "Holt was the gallery's best selling artist in 2005. I believe people are attracted to his paintings because they are truly able to see the Gila region through the artist's eyes." Usrey explains that rather than simply hiking or driving to a site, Holt often spends weeks at a time camping in the Gila Wilderness capturing in memory and sketches remote areas not often seen by the ordinary visitor. Holt adds, "For me, painting has always been a spiritual experience, and the mood of my work is determined by the mood of the land itself. When I am alone, I am best able to observe and understand what the land is saying to me personally." Framed in a wood frame. Measures approx. 23.25''H x 32''W.
