About


Tim Hovde is an Abstract Expressionist Fine Artist currently residing in Virginia.  Tim paints medium to large scale oil landscapes and multi-paneled pieces on a variety of surfaces and in a variety of mediums.

Experiencing my paintings is like diving into into a pool of pure color. Monumental in size, the viewers are enveloped by the thick textures and strong hues of his extraordinary pieces, finding themselves immersed in the artwork. For the last thirty years, I have found that I am able to translate my reality into paintings that are visually appealing as abstractions, yet remain true to the essence of my subject. 

Born in North Dakota, I was influenced by my father who was a professional photographer, where I was immersed in the world of art, music and photography. I believes the "art" of painting is a talent you are born with. The images that end up on my canvases are often from the places that inspire me. An afternoon spent walking through the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris inspired the Dans le jardin series.  The highly textured Pooling series comes from sunrises and sunsets of Arizona. 

My abstract landscapes are painted with bold strokes or quick energetic picks and pokes of a brush or palette knife, over and over again.  Listening to the beat of music helps me make the thousands of quick movements, strokes and scrapes, that create a painting from start to finish.
