Sometimes humor flowed from his brush…how he did it is one of his great gifts. There’s a lot that’s really special about Tom’s paintings, not only his wonderful sense of humor, but all the intelligence and sensitivity that comes through.
I have painted with Tom Buechner for several years. Direct, and at the same time subtle, he prodded to make me more aware, giving me direction from the simple level of my awareness.
Giving of himself for that which makes beauty around us, his sense of fairness and justice, are things about him I will always remember, as well as the many wonderful Friday nights, and sometimes Sunday mornings, painting in his studio. I am so very grateful for the privilege of knowing and painting with such a fine artist and human being. He is sorely missed.
