Under the Bridge, 12x12. Oil.I painted this from a picture I took as we were kayaking this past summer. The fact that I managed not to throw my phone in the drink is a small miracle

Biography
My name is Dave Thompson.  ProSpark Studio started out of a drive to create.  The name is a derivation of the word "pro" meaning "first" and "spark" like the spark of an idea, or the beginnings of creativity. ProSpark is the origins of creativity for me, the excitement of starting something new, the elation of the unknown.
 
I have always enjoyed creating. I find that if things in my life start to get out of sync, it drives my need to create. Even as a child, I found this to be true. If I was bored, I often felt guilty for not taking the opportunity to create something. I have explored many different types of art over the years from wood carving, acrylics, watercolors, pen and ink, cold glass, warm glass and glass blowing.  All of them are opportunities to develop something that can be beautiful and sometimes functional.
