Mr. Thompson’s oil paintings dreamily reflect the beauty of the area which he chooses as the inspiration for his works. Mr. Thompson has inaugurated his particular style of painting as “Open Impressionism,” defining it as an attempt at capturing the beauty of all things interacting with each other, and the resulting colors, vibrancy, richness, and texture which exists as a result of these interactions. His softly formed landscapes show scenes of earthly relaxation, inviting the viewer to participate within the dreamily painted scapes. Mr. Thompson graduated from Kent State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree and has exhibited throughout Southern Florida, Chelsea, New York City and his works are held in various personal collections throughout the United States. In 2020 Gulf Coast Hospital in Fort Myers, Florida accepted 4 of Mr. Thompson’s paintings for permanent display.
