Interior Decorators

Would your clients rather have original art on their walls? I would love for it to be mine.

The first time I was approached by an interior decorator, they were more concerned about a certain color and feel than any particular painting. I had not thought of my art as having to match another person’s vision before, but as we talked, I totally “got it” and we had a successful collaboration.

If you are working on a interior design project, I will happily work with you. You can look on your own – my blog and my Fine Art America galleries are both set up so you can search tags according to colors and themes. Or you can contact me and we can work together on either existing art, or commissions. Most art is unframed, or framed in simple black or white frames. Custom framing is available, or use your own framer.  Doing a project that might need several copies of a painting, like a hotel or business interior? You can buy museum quality prints,  framed or unframed, at Fine Art America at reasonable prices.

I am flexible in how I work financially with you. You can buy paintings and mark them up. Your clients can buy them directly. If there are multiple paintings involved, I would consider discounting them. I accept checks from regular patrons, credit cards or Pay Pal.

In short, I want to work with you. Interested? (and I hope you are.), Contact me and let’s talk. Everything great starts with a conversation.

STYLES AND THEMES

City Rain, by Tom Atkins

Style: Beats.

A style inspired by musical beats, by heart beats, by patterns and mid-century modern artists. Bright bars, colors and placement and layers carefully constructed to create a mood or image. Generally oil or watercolor. Paintings encompass all my major themes.

Excitable by Tom Atkins

Style: Energy

Broad strokes. Bold colors. White space. A minimal aesthetic. These paintings crackle with energy.

Into the Forest by Tom Atkins

Style: Graphic Lines

Thin lines, close colors. Images slowly emerge. The longer you look at these paintings, the more you see.

What is Missing by Tom Atkins

Style: Holes in the Color

Contrasting boldness with white space. A starkness between the two that often the viewer fills in with their own empty spaces.

The Color Leaks Out: Blue

Style: The Color Leaks Out

Paintings, watercolor and oil, where the painting spills outside the framing. A bit startling to viewers for some reason, but also fun and often playful.

The Search for Faith

Style: Chaos

Colors and lines that don’t quite. Uncomfortable juxtapositions. A certain uncomfortable sense of anxiety, reflecting the world we live in and the search for meaning.

Style: Furniture and Light

I take furniture, lights and light shades and paint them in many of my styles. Always bright, these are beloved conversation starters that stand out, where ever you choose to place them.

Style and Theme: Peace

Generally watercolors, often set in the seas or in gentle landscapes, these painting set a mood with the gentle flowing of colors layered one on the other.

Theme: The Amen Corner

A large section of my studio displays paintings of faith, mostly (but not always) Christian. These come in all genres (watercolor, acrylic and oil) and in all sizes. Uplifting and hopeful even in the midst of chaos, these sell well to people or institutions of deep faith. These paintings incorporate all my different styles.

Vermont April by Tom Atkins

Theme: Gardens

Greens and yellows and hopefulness in all sizes. Mostly oil or acrylic. This theme comes out in all my styles.

Poisonous City by Tom Atkins

Theme: Cities

I have spent much of my work life in cities, so it is natural that they should emerge as a theme. Sometimes hopeful. Sometimes dark, they show up again and again.
