Thomas Pringle

Thomas Pringle (b. 1941) says of his portraiture, "What I see is what I draw." Whether painting or drawing, Pringle’s art practice is marked an honest and true line. The erasures of its early attempts are in plain sight. Pringle will leave the three tries at an eye’s shape stacked above and below the best one. The multiple versions of a bent elbow move faintly beneath the solidified final choice. 

Since joining the Creativity Explored studio in 2006, Pringles work has been exhibited widely (See below). Recchiuti Confections chose a quartet of his colorful canine portraits to adorn their 4th series of artisanal chocolates in 2010.
