bath, england

a gorgeous town in somerset, about 100 miles west of london is well worth a visit - or a week's stay!


famed for it's spas and natural springs, it was favored by the roman's from about 45 AD - there is still a finely preserved example of a roman bath from that era - aquae sulis. 

and there are no better examples of amazing 18th century georgian architecture to be found anywhere on the british isles.

New Article: Artist Daily

http://www.artistdaily.com/blogs/artistdaily/archive/2010/11/22/who-needs-a-passport-when-you-ve-got-a-painting.aspx


Courtney Jordan at Artist Daily was kind enough to write this very nice article on my work today.

The article is very flattering for me of course, but I think it says far more about the invaluable ways in which a painting - through the eyes and emotions of the painter - can give a viewer glimpses of far away worlds they may never get to experience. 

Thank you very much Courtney !

My New Website

I am very pleased that at last - and with much help from the great people at Fine Art Studio Online - my new fine art in watercolor website is finally available to view:

http://thomasschaller.com


It's an interactive place where you can see new work almost as soon as it is produced, read and comment on the latest blog entries, and find out about upcoming events - exhibits, workshops, publications, etc. -  almost as soon as I find out. The works you will see are arranged in various albums to make their viewing simpler. Many new works and albums will be added in the coming days, so be sure to check back often. 


In addition, much of the work is available for purchase. So if you - or anyone you may know - should have interest in acquiring an original painting, please be in touch and it can be easily arranged. There is also a direct buy option if you prefer.


Finally, when you visit the site, please be sure to sign up for the email newsletter so that we can most easily stay in touch about developing events in the coming months.


2010 has been a remarkable and extremely exciting year for me.  And it is in large part due to the support, interest and generosity of all of you that I am so grateful and so optimistic. I look forward to the future with enthusiasm and to being more easily able to share it with all of you.


All my best wishes,


Tom
