A native of the region, Bob Timberlake continues to live in the Piedmont of North Carolina where he paints scenes like this beautiful depiction of his workplace. "The Studio" has proven to be an exceptionally popular painting; in 1992, the First Citizens Bank of North Carolina featured it on personal checks and credit cards as part of its "Keep North Carolina Clean & Beautiful" campaign. In addition, Timberlake designed the 1980 Christmas stamp for the U.S. Postal Service as well as statehood stamps for both North and South Carolina. He continues to be one of the South's most popular landscape artists.
