Tales of the Old West Giclee on Paper Signed & Numbered  

NOTES: Andy Thomas has brought to life a group of several writers who were very talented at telling "Tales of the Old West." This entertaining scene, thanks to Thomas's imagination and his brush, brings together some of America's well-knowm, beloved writers and other characters sharing their stories. With all the vivid details that make the artist's paintings so wonderful, we find writers such as Mark Twain to Willa Cather.

One of these tellers of tales was Jim Baker, who is featured enthralling the group with a story. In 1839, he left the civilized world to become a mountain man in the vast and cruel American West. Baker survived to live long enough to see the city of Denver emerge where he and the Arapho and Cheyenne had once roamed.

Baker survived to live long enough to see the city of Denver emerge where he and the Arapho and Cheyenne had once roamed. By 1895, Denver had 120,000 people with a telephone system, an opera house, and modern refrigeration. Baker could enjoy a frosty Coors beer or perhaps an ice cream sundae. In the Denver Evening Post, he could read the news from Europe, and perhaps events of the same day, thanks to transatlantic cables. From Denver, Baker could have traveled in a comfortable rail car across the continent.

Denver had everything except Baker's tales of the old West.

Andy Thomas bio

Andy Thomas is not only an immensely talented painter, but also a storyteller with the images he creates. His subject matter consists of a variety of images from historical events to intimate moments of everyday life. The artist’s desire to create is funneled into the area of painting realism that ranges from very loose to very tight. Thomas’s medium is primarily oil, but he also works in watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, pencil, and ink wash. He is also a very accomplished sculptor. Primarily self-taught, Thomas began his professional art career in 1991 after sixteen years with a major advertising agency. In his studio, the artist creates his unique paintings that tell their "stories." Thomas says, "I never consciously ponder elements of design or principals of design…I rely on my sketches to refine a value scheme as a starting point. They also help me visualize the completed painting and consider light, painting technique, subject or object importance, and other considerations. The viewer’s eye-path is a big influence on the composition at this point and all through the painting process." Thomas’s style has been compared to Russell and Remington, and artist says he also has been influenced by Howard Pyle, Richard Schmid, Norman Rockwell, and others. Many of Thomas’s historical images have been used in books and as book covers, and his various paintings also have been featured in numerous magazines. The artist’s original works are in many private and corporate collections and also in the permanent collections of museums around the country. Thomas exhibits in several shows annually, the most recent being the 2006 C. M. Russell Art Auction where he sold eight original paintings. The artist also enjoys judging art shows and teaching children and adult painting classes. He is a talented writer and published a book containing over 100 color images of his work, along with stories written by him. The artist is a member of the famed Salmagundi Club in New York, The Portrait Society of America, and other art organizations. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Missouri Southern State University with a BS in Marketing Management. Thomas and his wife, Dina, live in Carthage, Missouri. They have six children.
