"Observing nature with the intention of creating a painting sparks a keener awareness and appreciation of the inherent beauty in all that we see. Discovering what most excites the eye and how to best communicate the essence of that to the viewer becomes a passion. At times the subject of the painting might be more about the manipulation of light than the physical subject. Other times the color or the atmosphere might become the most telling. To successfully communicate I feel that the canvas should in some sense 'come to life' for myself and then hopefully the viewer."

Background Information

Since moving to Orlando in 1983, Tom Sadler has dedicated his efforts toward capturing the light, color, and mood of the Central Florida landscape. The intense light, combined with the natural beauty of the many lakes, rivers and parks of the area provide a never-ending source of inspiration. His paintings come to life as a celebration of this beauty found in nature, sometimes exuberant, at other times more subtle.

Tom received his BFA at Auburn University. Sadler's education included the study of oil painting with instructor Jack Dempsey at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, which Tom considers of utmost value. He also attended the School of Visual Arts in New York. Since that time he has studied the work of a variety of artists who have had different influences on his work. Sadler feels a pressing desire and necessity to paint each day. He feels that the door is just opening to the world of revealing all that is possible for him through his artwork.
