I don't remember anymore how I came to stumble upon this wonderful artist but I'm certainly glad I did. Surrounding ourselves with beautiful images and learning to appreciate fine art is all a part of living a beautiful life.
I'm sure you've heard that old adage, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But when it comes to music and art that is not true. While the beholder may think something is beautiful, it doesn't make it beautiful in the objective sense of the word. Beauty has objective standards and we must train our minds to recognize true beauty whenever it is encountered.
Just so you don't think I'm some kind of arty snob, I have my fair share of Big Lot prints. For $10.00 you can get a really fun large and well framed image that will brighten a corner of your house (or in my case the bathroom where I don't want to put my fine art).
Tim has some wonderful art at super reasonable prices. It's nice to invest in something you really, really love and there is nothing like fine art to make your home look special.

The above painting by Tim named Nymph Lake, is one of my favorites. You can visit Tim at his Etsy store or drop in on his blog, Old World Swine. Tim is also gracious enough to show us some his methods at the Daily Painting Blog.
