    Mr. Warner’s painting are classic Americana… He should be pegged as the next Norman Rockwell! His detail and perspective of nature are exquisite!

    Tom, to me you are anouther Grandma Moses
    Your work is colorful, unique, and to me it shows me that life is good to you.
    As you hold that important brush in hand you are the artist that about life.

  4. Very beautiful, I like that I know what I am looking at. These would also make beautiful a calender. I bet you must have some
    holiday paintings.

    Tom’s work has the capacity to reach out and invite you to walk into the middle of the story. True treasures!

    Tom Warner is no longer the Berkshire’s best kept secret! He has fans and many who admire his special style. Now that we’s becoming famous, we hope he’ll not change all the things that make him such an outstanding artist. He’s told me how he met Norman Rockwell, another famous Berkshire resident. Rockwell told the young Warner “If your going to paint a picture, have it tell a story, otherwise don’t bother painting”, a lesson Warner seemingly never forgot.

    His work seems to be well-influenced by Rockwell and by Vermont’s Grandma Moses, but in the end the style is “pure Tom Warner”.

  9. You’ve captured the moment in each of your paintings…so simple yet full of story and life. I can feel your love of life thru color and brush stroke…thank-you for sharing your wonderful gift.

  10. Now here’s an artist that has a sense of natural reaslism. Just love this artists work. Hope he sends me something for my walls! … Craig Adler Miami, FL

    Immediately calls to mind Norman Rockwell, Winslow Homer, and Edward Hopper- with a fully unique and original style. It is hard to believe these vivid paintings are pure watercolor.

    My favorites are The Mahawie, Dr. Pepper and Running with Sean. There is a sense of realism to them that can be hard to capture in a water color medium.

    There is a painting of Tom’s that I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on it. It’s not one of the paintings above, but it’s of a loon at the end of the dock, and the night light streaming on the lake. The colors remind me of “Starry, Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh. It’s my favorite painting ever, and I was lucky enough to have not seen it in person once, but twice at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Just like Van Gogh’s style, I am memorized by Tom’s style as well, and I feel privileged to have him as a friend!

    Tom’s work touches your soul. I was lucky enough to get a personal guided tour of his studio in 2011 and see the originals. While looking at his paintings, I felt like I was there, experiencing the scene firsthand. I wanted to touch each one of them to feel the experience he felt as he lived the moments recalled in his paintings. Each painting has a story and a hidden secret, and, if you’re lucky as I was, you will learn each one. Photos don’t do them justice. He is also an excellent story teller as eloquent with words as he is with watercolors. I’m honored to claim him as a good friend and fellow MMRHS alumnus.

    Your words, your art are all testaments to a simpler way of life… Uncomplicated, honest and above all you give the reader/viewer a sense of peace; something I think this world needs so much more of… Thank you Tom for sharing your gifts with the world…

    Fondly, Debi

    Mr. Warner evokes deep warmth and emotion in his paintings. His use of colour is astonishing. One of the most amazing watercolour artists of our time.
