I have been creating art for almost 10 years. My art is one way I express myself. Some of my drawings are a visual diary for what is going on in my life and at times bring me a sense of peace. I am inspired by everything around me including other artists. I am fascinated by all art and the different creative processes. I want to try everything. In fact, I am always learning and experimenting with new techniques. I greatly enjoy using color and texture.
“I try to do something every morning,” Tomaino says. “It’s so relaxing to me. I find myself humming when I’m burning metal. If I can spend an hour every morning, my days are good.” - One Man's Treasure, by Jim Dyar for Enjoy Magazine, October 2009
The exhibition runs April 19 - May 25.
Images coming soon!

Old School Restaurtant
A first time second saturday ART NIGHT participant, Old School Restaurant presents Al Briones! Visit the Restaurant, try their scrumptious meals and enjoy live piano recital of Mr. Briones!
Al Briones writes about his music:
"I find the beauty and power of free form improvised music in how meaning is shared beneath words.
Like a conversation of the heart with a close friend, it can take on a life of its own and travel to unexpected places; becoming an unfolding story that is more about the experience of the journey than the destination.
. . .A story that another heart understands, and knows, because it has lived out and shared the joys and struggles of being alive as well.
May you find true blessings along your journey,
. . . and thank you for taking a moment to share in my journey as well.
---"Hungry Al" Briones"
