I'm Still Here

This ancient relic of a barn captured my attention immediately. I saw the skeletal form of this structure and was struck by the absolute resistance that this barn was demonstrating. The skeletal structure was still standing, supported by massive beams that were largely still intact – defying the law of gravity. The light and shadows crossing the massive columns were incredible to observe. I also loved the way the sunlight hit the intact sections of the building. When, as a kid I worked in the tobacco fields, the barns were constructed differently, but they were all made to last thru the ages. These vintage barns are a legendary and nostalgic part of the US countryside. They remind us of long ago moments in our lives. In its skeletal form, this building is symbolic of hope and the beauty of aging.
Tim employs masterful techniques in transparent watercolor and dry-brush, to create paintings with unusual depth and detail. His subjects depict simple pleasures, respect for nature, and the ability to capture the unique warmth and character of people and their environments.
