All posts by Pencil Art by Tim

I am a self taught artist who for lack of a better term considers myself to be an abstract artist. I love to dabble in all mediums and all types of subject matter. I especially love to add a little whimsy to many of my creations. I hope you enjoy my blog Inspire Arts as well as my companion blog

#496 Bright Green Vase

I love to sit down at my art desk and create. To me there is freedom in hap hazard creation. This painting is an 9×12 in soft pastel painting done on white drawing paper.


#495 Field of White Flowers

Today’s offering is actually an 18×24 soft pastel painting I started back in the 90’s. I found it in a portfolio and decided it needed to be finished. It started out as soft pastel but I added soft touches of oil pastels. The key to life is always finishing what you started. It may take a while but keep preserving.

#494 Old Tin Duck

A lot of people like my old page drawings. I must admit I also like them as backgrounds. This book page is from a history book from the twenties. It is an 8 1/2 x 11 colored pencil drawing. In our society something old, like people, are not valued as much as they should. There is a lot of wisdom that can be gained from sitting down and conversing with a senior citizen. It will do you both good.

#492 Walking in the Light

Another in my series of 6×9 oil pastel paintings. This one is of a woman walking along a sunlit path. A shoutout to for the reference photo. This painting was inspired by the Bible verse, “Walk in the light as He is in the light.” As Believers we are follow Jesus’ model for our lives. This is the best way I know how to be in the light.

#490 Peacock

On a recent trip to New Mexico I took some pictures of a peacock. This 8 1/2 by 11 soft pastel painting,done on Canson, paper was inspired by the peacocks I saw there. Life is full of beauty we just have to take the time and see the world around us for what it is, God’s creation. Try it sometime you will be amazed by the things which appear in front of you through the lens of God’s word.
