Beyond the edge of the image
Thomas A. Baillieul's paintings tempt viewers to tell a story.
A senior environmental scientist and project manager for the federal government, Baillieul has been painting for more than thirty years. He says his training as a geologist helps him interpret landscapes and seascapes and the way light plays from multiple sources. He paints what interests him, which includes aviation, memories of life in the African bush, exploration of cross-cultural symbolism, statements against war and aggression, days by the sea, and peaceful summer evenings.
J&G Diner is one of his “Summer Nights” paintings, and The General’s Orders is an antiwar piece that was shown at the Ohio Art League’s Fall 2004 Juried Exhibition at the Columbus Museum of Art.
Baillieul is a member of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, Ohio. His work can be found at http://earthfriendarts.tripod.com.
