American Realism In Pastels...

About the Artist
Tom Sierak

Painting tomorrow’s memories today”... that’s how Tom Sierak likes to describe
his pastel  paintings.  He says, “People often talk about the good ol’ days, and
how nice it would be to return to them.  I think the times we are living now are good
ol’days...of tomorrow.  Places and things may change around us, but the bond that
exists between children, parents, and grandparents never does.  I try to convey a
message of warmth and emotion, and hope these late 20th century portraits of American
life some day become the viewer’s window to the past.”

The New Englander’s medium of choice is pastels. He feels that they’re just starting
to receive widespread recognition. Tom says, “I favor pastels because I’m able to draw
and color simultaneously, and I love to draw.  It’s a great combination for me.”

Pastels are made from the same pigments used for oil paints.  A binding 
agent is added to create a chalk-like stick, which is applied to a textured surface,
usually paper. Available in many vibrant colors, pastels maintain their just-painted look indefinitely, unlike oils, which can crack and darken over time. “It’s an unfamiliar medium

to many people, and I’d like to do my part to help change that,” says Sierak.

A Graduate of the Vesper George School in Boston, Tom has been the featured 
cover story in The Artist’s Magazine.  His paintings have appeared on numerous 
covers of Reminisce magazine, a national publication with a nostalgic theme, and 
in Ideals magazine, which features art and poetry.  In addition to limited edition and
open edition prints, his work has also been published on greeting cards, puzzles, and 
collector plates worldwide, and a new hardbound gift book entitled,
“Giving Love A Memory”, featuring over 20 of his paintings, is now available in 
bookstores everywhere, including  websites,  Amazon.com & Barnes & Noble.
