“Then I see this artist painting by the Island Inn, which is right when you get off the island at the top of the hill, meaning EVERYONE has to walk by you… I thought, whew… brave soul… I watched and was facinated. He clearly wasn’t a vacationing artist, this guy KNEW what the heck he was doing. He was painting Uncle Henry’s at sunset. (That painting has long since sold and we regret not buying it every day!)… It looked so easy, I went up to him, hating to interrupt, told him this was my first time trying to paint, and I thought he was awful brave for painting right in the ‘spotlight’ so to speak. He laughed, and told me that no one would know if I was some great artist or not, so I really needed to not think about that and just paint. Well… true enough… so I pretended, ha ha… it was big fun, one man even took a picture of ‘an artist’ (i didn’t want to burst his bubble). Tim was awesome, he can talk and paint (wow!) he gave me names of books I should read, of things he does, he pointed out subtle things that I never would have realized. It was like the most awesome art education all stuck in a small amount of time. I will forever be grateful for that.” -Barbara Stroud

Tim mentions a book by Charles Hawthorne, “Hawthorne on Painting”, – a classic.  Last I saw it was available HERE.

    I love Tim’s work! Is there a way I can get in touch with him? I’d like to tell him about a Plein Air event my town is having in Clifton, Va. I think he’d really be interested.
