Large Scale History: Tommy Lee Ball

Guest Author: Richard Wills, Tulsa Art Studio Tour Committee Member
Tommy Ball, Central Bus Station, Watercolor, 22” x 30”
The watercolors created by TommyBall are full of bright colors, and studies of light reflections at different times of the day. He bikes around town with his camera, looking for inspiration, and when found he quickly puts his ideas into action. His subjects normally have a historical value, or something that is easily missed.

While he has studied past artists, he tries to not concentrate on their work while creating his own. Ball believes that many artists can get lost in the cloud of creativity and limit themselves to recycling of images.

Meet & see the working studio of Ball along with 10 other artists on April 21-22, noon until 5 pm on the Tulsa Art Studio Tour. Read more in Art Focus Oklahoma magazine or purchase tickets here

It is frustrating when you find a perfect piece of art that needs some restoration. Luckily, I have found a professional experienced art restorer who does a fabulous job, However, I have many pieces, does anyone know any other art restoration galleries?
