Happy Birthday Tommy by David Hinds
An original acrylic on board painting by David Hinds of Springfield, IL.
The sights and sounds of my childhood come to life in my artwork, whether it be my abstracted farm animals, cherished pets, or my local hero, Abraham Lincoln.
I was fortunate to have grown up 3 miles down the road from famed folk artist George Colin. His use of soft pastels nurtured my love of the simple little sticks of pure pigment. The immediate bold and brilliant colors never cease to amaze me.
