Setting up a show is a good two hours of physical labor, sometimes in pouring rain, often in early morning darkness. Afterwards, Tim and Nancy are exhausted from all that schlepping, building, hanging, and arranging. But they are ready to meet everyone with fine art and big smiles.
Early in his career, before prints were allowed at shows, Tim did lots of shows that were 5 days long. During those long days he would paint while at the shows. He actually enjoyed that, getting instant feedback from his work, and to this day he will often paint right at a show.
"Sea Escape" 1986. This is the first image of Tim's that was printed. Back in '86 this was very dramatic and huge - 36" x 48" canvas with an equally huge price tag.
So very true.
As with any project that requires many hours of concentratrion, when Tim completes a painting there is always a sigh of contentment. And maybe a few nibbles at his brush (but I really do feed him regularily).
Some of the paints, brushes and tools that Tim uses to create his paintings.
This mini Wistrom looks great on our mantle above the fireplace! Love it!
Sometimes ya just gotta relax. After a series of shows in Arizona 2016, we got to spend time with family - on their boat in Arizona! Thanks Bryan & Valerie, what a fun time.
This chair has served Tim well for a couple of decades ... and always makes me smile! - Nancy
Love the contrasting wall color - it really makes the painting stand out! Nice.
