"The Principles of Composition
David Tummons, a 1969 graduate of Hillcrest High School owner of Swank Salon on East Sunshine, is a noted and exhibited painter of a style he calls "Impressionistic Realism". In high school and the beginning of his art career he drew in a photo realistic style. Now he works in a much looser style.
Many of the paintings feature horses, which have always been part of Tummons’ life. “I grew up in a rodeo environment,” he said, “and have enjoyed creating pieces that remind me of that period in my life. My folks had a quarter horse business north of Springfield.”
