Callin’ the Red by Andy Thomas

Callin’ the Red by Andy Thomas is available in several sizes on different media.

As the donkeys march around the stained-glass shade over the billiard table, these famous gentleman are enjoying a laugh. President Obama smiles at President Jackson as he gets ready to make his shot. Wouldn’t you just love to know what they have said to each other? It appears that the game is on and there is something to smile about as Obama is “Callin’ the Blue.” These Democrats are enjoying each other’s company as our great nation’s first president’s portrait casts his spirit over them. And, from looking at the other painting on the wall, these historic figures have played this game together before. Can you name all the presidents in this image?

Andy Thomas

Andy Thomas, artist,  is not only an immensely talented painter, but also a storyteller with the images he creates. His subject matter consists of a variety of images from historical events to intimate moments of everyday life. The artist’s desire to create is funneled into the area of painting realism that ranges from a very loose, almost impressionistic style to very tight, realistic depictions. Thomas’s medium is primarily oil, but he also works in watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, pencil, and ink wash. He is also a very accomplished sculptor.

Primarily self-taught, Thomas began his professional art career in 1991 after sixteen years with a major advertising agency. In his studio, the artist creates his unique paintings that tell their “stories.” Thomas says, “I never consciously ponder elements of design or principals of design… I rely on my sketches to refine a value scheme as a starting point. They also help me visualize the completed painting and consider light, painting technique, subject or object importance, and other considerations. The viewer’s eye-path is a big influence on the composition at this point and all through the painting process.” Thomas’s style has been compared to Russell and Remington. He says he has also been influenced by Howard Pyle, Richard Schmid, Norman Rockwell, and others.

A variety of Thomas’s historical images have been used in books and featured on book covers. Some paintings have also been featured in numerous magazines. The artist’s original works are in many private and corporate collections and also in the permanent collections of museums around the country.

Thomas exhibits in several shows annually, such as the C. M. Russell Art Auction, the Best of the West at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis. The artist also enjoys judging art shows and teaching children and adult painting classes. He is a talented writer and published a book containing over 100 color images of his work, along with stories written by him.

The artist is a member of the famed Salmagundi Club in New York, The Portrait Society of America, and other art organizations. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Missouri Southern State University with a BS in Marketing Management.
