Painting by Tim O'Neil

Tim O'Neil had this to say about his art, "Art has been an important interest of mine, going way back to the time I was a child. My father was an excellent draftsman and could have been a great artist, had he pursued it. And, both he and my mother encouraged me. Although I never had any formal training or art education at any university, through the years a number of very accomplished artists came into my life, to instruct and inspire me."

He continued, "Landscape painting intrigues me the most, because of the beauty of Nature, its mystery, and its challenges. An artist can create beauty, tell a story, and instill wonder within the viewer. That is what I try to do. I do hope you enjoy my humble attempts at achieving this goal."
