Artist Timothy C. Tyler
The Artist Says:
I have sold paintings on the street and in small events. I have sold in renown galleries and elegant exhibition halls. I have failed many times and kept trying. After thirty-seven years of attempting to convey one, small, crisp visual idea, I feel I may finally be able to speak this language we call painting. TCT
"I have never painted and am not an artist, but if I ever were to become one, I'd want to paint like you."
Other Artists Say:
"Your work stuns me, amazes me, intrigues me and puts me in awe. In my humble opinion, you are by far one of the finest artists of this century...and among the best of the artists I have had the honor and privilege of meeting. I wish I knew half of what you know about art and painting. Thank you for being who you are and for sharing." Sandy Askey-Adams
"I have traveled to all the important art museums of Europe; to many, several times in my life. This painting is not only the obvious best piece in the exhibit, it's the best painting I've ever seen." Charles Banks Wilson, at the presentation of Best of Show onto "Canning Pears" "Wow, glad you harnessed that raw talent. Impressive, powerful sky and movement for a young kid painter!" R. Buda
The renowned artist Charles Banks Wilson, as presenting judge of a recent show said of Tim's Canning Pears, "I have been to most art museums in America and Europe, many of them, several times. This is not only the best painting in this show, but the best I have ever seen."

(The client bought his art supplies and his first real canvas.) By age 16 his work was consigned to art galleries. At age 20 his work was in galleries in Scottsdale and Dallas. Attending college on a baseball scholarship, Tyler found his greater opportunities lay in fine art. The staff of the college bought one of his paintings for the school president his freshman year.
The elegance and skill of the old masters inspires Tim's work. He visits art museums regularly and reads voraciously. He's studied with many respected artist/teachers. In Santa Fe and Scottsdale he contacted and sought advice from respected professional painters who all told him:"work from life".
He has traveled from California to Maine and to Europe teaching workshops, attending his exhibits and painting landscapes. Often one of his children would go along with him. "Artists visit national parks and museums as part of the job. Sharing this with my kids couldn't have hurt their upbringing." They've seen most art museums in the US.
He has shown in over 40 galleries in 34 states. In 1993, signature membership was bestowed to him by the founder of the Oil Painters of America. He [...]
