In 2006 his painting took another turn. Tim began painting 'Expressive Figurative' work.  Drawn back to using a pallet knife his focus is on color and texture, eliminating facial features and many details.  The goal is to give enough information so the viewer will be able to complete the story himself. 

Timothy Genet is an artist born and raised in Southern California.

Tim started painting in 1973 when his wife enrolled him in a painting class.  Originally doing large studio paintings in oil on canvas with palette knife in the late 1980's he went searching for a new direction for his art.  He journeyed to Catalina Island to observe a plein air group painting on location.  He was instantly hooked.  A world traveler, his Early California painting style captured the essence and beauty of his native California as well as the many foreign lands he has visited.  His travels have produced paintings from Hawaii to the East Coast, Mexican Riviera, Europe, the Caribbean, East Africa, the South Pacific and South and Central America.

Today, Tim is trying new styles and ideas.  While he still works in oils he is utilizing other mediums, and is currently concentrating on painting and abstracting  the figure.  "Always moving forward with a lot of passion and a lot of paint!"
