About

“Painting is a language which cannot be replaced by another language,” Balthus.

I would like to think my paintings are like a conversation among friends; hopefully a pleasant and not too strident conversation.

I studied art at The Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida; Livingston State College  in Livingston, Alabama; and The University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina never getting near a degree before joining the army in 1969.

My major artistic (and otherwise) influence has been my father, William Tidwell, who was a student of the precisionist painter Ralston Crawford and who retired  as the head of the art department at Columbia College in South Carolina.
