 August 8, 2020... Please join me for a painting demo and outdoor display during the Kansas City 

Water Garden Tour.  The tour hours are Noon - 6 pm; and I will be located at 1329 Deer Valley Road

in Lee's Summit, Missouri.  An ongoing display of my art is at Images Art Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas.

Gallery hours are 10 am - 6 pm, Thursday - Friday - Saturday.  

Covid-19 lockdown has lengthened my in-home studio time. I've been painting instead

of going out! Look for many new paintings in the coming weeks on this site! 



I am Dawn Thomas, and here's a little bit of my background. In 2008, I retired after a 41 year career as a Missouri High School art teacher. I have pursued my passion for watermedia painting ever since.

My inspiration comes as close as my backyard flowers to far away places! I look for color, strong areas of light and shadow in subjects that resonate with me. I particularly love the Taos area and Southwest...pottery markets, landscapes and the quality of light!

Studying with many Masters of watercolor adds to my understanding and technique. I constantly evolve.

My work has won awards in local and state shows and has been chosen for exhibition in National shows as well. I am a member of the following State Watercolor Associations: MO/KS/AL/KY/TX/NM/IL/PA/LA/Red River WS (WI & ND)

Locally in Kansas City, I display my work as a member of ArtsKC, which affords me the opportunity to display work at major corporations in the area. I am a member of three local artist groups: Raytown, Lee's Summit and Images Gallery in Overland Park, KS.

Welcome to my website - I appreciate your interest in my art. Please feel free to contact me about purchasing my original paintings, reproduction prints or notecard sets. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
