Exhibit: Timothy Rees

Can you believe
this guy
has been studying art
for only 12 months?

And that the only
formal instruction he's had
was a 3-day workshop
with Jeremy Lipking ?

(in addition to the diligent study
of Richard Schmid's Alla Prima )

I suppose the stylistic connections
are obvious.

But what a quick study he is!

He pulls these strong compositions
he's been doing it his entire life.

And where else
would a young genius
from Arizona go
other than to Chicago
so he can paint and draw
at the Palette and Chisel.

his work
is a little too derivative.

But hey,
he's got
another six decades
to develop his own style.

the model depicted above
has her own website
where she posts images
of the many fine paintings
for which she posed.
