The larger-than-life paintings of Tom Everhart straddle the line between the comfortably familiar and a new way of seeing. He is the only fine artist educated by Charles Schulz, and granted lifelong permission by the Peanuts creator to use his characters to make extraordinary fine art. Everhart utilizes the instantly recognizable image of Snoopy to communicate a new sensibility--one that is at once accessible and exotic.
The element that originally drew Tom Everhart to Schulz was a fascination with the "brilliant architecture of Schulz's black ink line," and its potential for monumental shifts in tone and scale. Tom Everhart's love of Schulz's line--and his remarkable ability to capture it with his own vivid interpretation--impressed Schulz and launched a friendship that continued until Schulz's death in 2000.
