Montana native Lane Timothy has been painting since he can remember. At only 16 , Lane won the Charlie Russell National Art Scholarship which inspired him to delve into painting the American west.
Many years later, his unique talent of blending his signature contemporary art technique to western iconography has made him a favorite among collectors world wide. Lane's Vintage Americana pieces have graced multiple magazine covers and attracted gallery attention alike. He often takes time off to reflect, consuming emotion and recalling history to create his next authentic vision. Using a large canvas layered with texture, oil and limited color, he creates modern realism with old soul.
Lane is community driven and donates many of his original oil paintings to charities and other organizations. Since 2003 he has donated a painting each year to his hometown Cowboy Ball which raises essential funds for the rodeo program at University of Montana. He resides in Missoula Montana and Salt Lake City Utah. https://bigskyjournal.com/artist-of-the-west-lane-timothy/
