Piece of Work: Tommy May

Abstract painter Tommy May splits his time between California and the Island, where his parents have a home in Vineyard Haven. Yet even when he’s working in his Hollywood Hills studio, he is dreaming of Martha’s Vineyard and drawing upon its inspiration to fuel his next series of paintings.

This past winter’s focus came from his idea to showcase abstracted views of Vineyard scenes, such as fields and dunes. He is calling the series Blossoms.
