This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Painter Tom Lubchenco, born in 1947, was shot to death June 16, 2002 by a man attempting to rob a Wal-Mart in Glenwood Springs, Colorado where the artist had recently been employed.

He was a self-taught, forceful painter with a strong realistic bent. His work ran a gamut of styles from an illustrational "Luke and Tom West of State Bridge," to an intensely realistic "Judith and Holofernes," a starkly direct, Paula Modersohn-Becker-like "Enfant Terrible" -- a painting of a belligerent child -- to a cartoon Mickey Mouse. An avid fly fisherman, his still-lifes of trout are strongly, expressively painted.

It is clear from his work, that Lubchenco had a passion for making art from reality, and he did so with character, profundity and a fiery creative temperament. One can also deduce this from the painters of the past he admired, like Jan Vermeer, Joseph Turner, Thomas Moran, Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso. Their power and individuality of statement and, at least in the first four, intense commitment to realism, reflected Lubchenco's own feelings and artistic direction.
