About the Item

This is an original oil paining on linen canvas by Timothy Andrew McGuire. To stand before one of Tim McGuire‘s works is to be immersed in a world of colorful energy and vibrant joy. Common objects sing with lively brushstrokes and unexpected colors. One can feel the artist's delight in his surroundings: a walk in the wintry woods, a book with a comforting pot of tea, the azure sea with its fishing boats and shacks. scenes of domestic life shimmer and sparkle under his brush. Comments likening his work to Van Gogh are common, but McGuire has a style all his own. Having trained in traditional, academic painting at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, he stayed on and taught for 10 years. When he left Italy it wasn’t to return to his native New York, but to Nova Scotia, to a small fishing village where he married, started a family, and set up a studio. McGuire found his muse in catches of fish and fishing shacks, in the woods, and in family life. There is a childlike wonder and enthusiasm for life that permeates his work, taking us back to the magic of childhood when all things were possible and filled with color.
