Seth Tummins is a self-taught painter focused on landscapes.. Through his artistic practice, which he describes as prayer-like, he is discovering and becoming what he calls his “inner man.”
Tummins is self-taught, through listening, trial and error and workshops with notable painters such as Jason Saunders, Scott Christensen, Frank Serrano, Lori Putnam, Paula Frizbe and Pam Padgett. He’s also learned from in-field experiences with professionals at Plein Air South – not limited to but including Larry Moore, Quang Ho, Dawn Whitelaw, Morgan Samuel Price, Kathie Odom, Anne Blair Brown, and John Guernsey.
The premise of this work is to serve as an introduction to one another, to our lands, and to our special existence.
It is also intended to foster the collecting of imagery as pieces of heritage worthy of passing on to posterity.
Homes will change, fields will change, towns will change,
and these facts give cause to pass on something tangible so that others,
future families and various interested parties,
may know more fully that we lived and thought of them enough to leave something of worth.
May you find that it is more than a record,
though it is at least that.
May you find that it is, in fact, the expression of a deeply resonating chord
that wishes for others to awaken to its resonance
and join in the kind of life that can only grow from gratitude.
