Crooked Tree Studio and Gallery


Cobalt CT USA               860-267-8410                Thomas@thomasmclean.com


A fine art gallery featuring contemporary paintings and drawings of the moods and atmospheric expressions

of the Connecticut River valley and its surroundings.


Mr. McLean is a self taught artist motivated by the love of art and a
lifelong romance with the aesthetic sublime.  He paints en plein air but also
enjoys working in the studio and believes it is the art of the painter to
bring life to the canvas, to give it a personality, without which a painting
is just paint and canvas.

“All art is most perfect in so far as it keeps the just medium between literal imagination of outward nature and that ideal conception which haunts the imagination. Art is neither wholly material nor wholly spiritual, [ but rather ] the beautiful child of the wedlock between nature and the soul; and she is the most beautiful, the more she bears a resemblance to both parents.”


Cristopher Pearse Cranch

“Nature contains the elements, in form and colour, of all pictures, as the keyboard contains the notes to all music. But the artist is born to pick, and choose, and group with science, these elements, that the result may be beautiful—as the musician gathers his notes, and forms his cords, until he brings forth from chaos glorious harmony.”

James Abbott McNeil Whistler
