Tom Fowler

For years I'd admired two large pieces from Tom's "Backpacking with Ezra" series that my brother had purchased. Finally, I moved to new digs where I had some wall space for pictures. Here's one of Tom's pieces that I picked up from, of course, the "Backpacking with Ezra" series (it's large: 4' x 3')...


And here's a smaller painting (on the Chronicle) from Tom's "Coffee Cup" series...


In May, 2005, I was shocked to learn, via my brother (who was a friend of Tom's), that Tom had passed away suddenly. A genuinely nice guy, he was, in my opinion, another unnecessary victim of America's ridiculous health care system. More on Tom here -> Chonicle Obituary.
