Mythology was so alive in the 18th century, a vibrant and colorful subject for artists to entertain their patrons with. Rococo artist Tiepolo was wonderfully vibrant in his work, especially so when envisioning mythological subjects, such as Flora in her realm.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, as I don't limit myself in the process of how an image is made. Images are my life.
