October 2023 Reading Tour

July’s tour was such a success and covered 4,400 road miles! So, I’m getting back on the road and heading northwest, Oklahoma, Colorado and New Mexico. I hope to see you there!

Tom Murphy’s art work covers multiple mediums, sketches, pastels, oils, photography, and sculpture. Although, mostly self-taught in most of these mediums, Murphy did work with Barbra Riley in photography. Most of his art are of portraits and landscapes.
