Speaking of Glinda's Magical Book of Records, I just came across this study that I painted back in the 90s of Glinda. I was commissioned for a mural celebrating Baum's Land of Oz and its denizens, and was asked to keep the designs faithful to the book series' illustrations by John R. Neill. For various reasons, the project fell apart, but I got paid for and had fun doing the prep studies.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
