Commemorative Painting by Jed Thomas
“I was interested in conveying something about the exhilarating and yet anxious feeling one has when taking the risk of trying out something for the first time. Some new challenges seem daunting, causing you to hesitate and even procrastinate taking that first step. Yet that moment you make that leap a new adventure begins and the fear of falling begins to fade away.” – Jed Thomas
That statement by artist Jed Thomas truly captures the spirit of our 2016 commemorative painting. Titled Novice Flyer this framed oil piece measures at 30” x 40” pre-framed. Jed Thomas graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and from Arizona State University with a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking. He maintains an active art career while sharing his time with his family and his other career, as a school psychologist.
