Tim in the studio

Painting

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.

Complete

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).

Is it done?

There is always so much detail that goes into a painting that Tim likes to take a step back, have a glass of wine, and contemplate the entire painting. He'll look at it, we'll talk about it, he'll sleep on it, and often he'll make some changes before it is really done.
