Meeting well-loved artist Bob Timberlake was a highlight in my career. It was several years ago when our company had a needlework division and we had a license agreement with Bob Timberlake to do his artwork in counted cross-stitch. Barbara Cockerham and I met Bob at the local barbecue place where he frequented and had a delightful visit with him.
Following our wonderful lunch, we went to his gallery and marveled to see his magnificent antiques collection that is the subject of many of his paintings. He showed us furniture pieces from his line, and I was in awe of the beautiful Bob Timberlake furniture.
I will never forget his wonderful collection of quilts, drums, and wonderful American artifacts. He is truly an American Hero and captures grassroots America in his work.
United States presidents and HRH Prince Charles have honored him, and his awards are too numerous to list, but a visit to his website will give you the most interesting information about him.
His grandfather founded Piedmont Furniture in 1913, and with Bob’s continued presence in the furniture market, the Timberlake family can boast over 100 years in the furniture business.
Bob Timberlake is one of my heroes, and it thrilled me when we featured him in The Cottage Journal magazine not long ago. He has kept the spirit of America alive in his art, his words, his designs, and the way he teaches all of us.
He has generously offered a beautiful piece of artwork, called Wildwoods, that is being released this spring, to be given to a lucky winner.

I would love to have his artwork in my home.It would remind me of the beauty of nature!
I HAVE LOVED HIS WORK FOREVER. I HAVE HIS FURNITURE,PRINTS,LAMPS,SPREDS,LAMPS AND BOOKS.
Bob Timberlake is not only a great artist but a great man. He has been overly generous in sending his Christmas cards (some signed) over the years. One wall in our home is devoted to these cards.
We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Timberlake a few months ago at his gallery. He is such a nice man! We purchased a couple of his small prints which he gladly signed for us. We will be moving to a new home and would love to add to our collection to help decorate our new home. Not only do we love his artwork, my husband loves his clothing line!
His art is second only to my children’s art:) We’ve been fan for years!
I love the tiny forget-me-nots, and each little detail so beautifully captured. I can almost see a wood sprite dancing in the underbrush. Simply lovely!
A beautiful depiction of the intricate details of nature! It reminds me of childhood walks in the woods with my Dad, and stopping to chat beneath a giant old oak tree.
Beautiful art work. Would love to hang it in my home. 🙂
Beautiful furniture line, beautiful art! Takes me back to simpler, quieter times. I love Mr. Timberlake’s creations!
I have always loved Mr. Timberlake’s furniture line and his artwork is so beautiful. What a talented gentleman!

There’s never too much art to be had.
I have a beautiful quilt of Bob’s hanging in my beach house…it is of an old boat…. brings peace to me every time I look at it.
I’ve been a fan of his for years and would love to add this piece of his art to my home.
I have always loved the great outdoors and art that represents it. This print is just lovely! plus, he has a fabulous name for this kind of art! xox, sandy
oh a name from the past. I owned some of his pieces 30+ years ago. How grand! Would appreciate a chance to win something. Thanks!
What a wonderful piece of art. I love all the detail, and serene beauty of the woodlands that it presents.
Wildwoods reminds me of my love of nature and the woods of Pennsylvania. I would love to hang it in my home.
What a wonderful piece of artwork! It relaxes one to gaze upon it. Thank you for sharing his work.
Absolutely lovely art work.
To me, this piece of art represents roots and beginnings. Being a military brat, I never had the feeling of roots. I married a man born and raised in Alabama and transplanted myself here to raise our children. Alabama is home for them; their roots. After the children left to begin their lives and families, my husband built a beautiful log home for us…a new beginning for the rest of our life. It represents our roots here in Alabama. Bob Timberlake’s art would be right at home in our home and every time I looked at it, I would think about roots and beginnings.
Would love to win this beautiful piece of artwork.
I Love anything Bob Timberlake. His paintings, his furniture pieces, etc. He is a wonderful artist in every sense of the word. I have loved and admired him for years. I live in South Carolina, but many of his paintings reflect both the Carolinas so well. I would love this painting and it would be lovely in my home. Thank you for featuring him in your magazines and for bringing this opportunity to us. He is a lovely and talented person.

My very rustic little cabin in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York could benefit from having a great piece of artwork! No indoor plumbing and not insulated for Winter, but the peace, beauty and unspoiled land make this place a true retreat! Especially like that the simpler days of yesteryear speak through his work!
I was introduced to him on this site. I fell in love with his work. His attention to details enthralls me. I would love to hang his beautiful expression of his love of nature to inspire others to become great caretakers of the earth for future prodigy!
This lovely Bob Timberlake piece would work beautifully with the rustic ironwork wording plaque that a friend gave me recently. It reads “every birdie welcome”! How appropriate!
What a wonderful fresh painting to celebrate summer. I have a watercolor of a spring house all nestled in a grove of green trees and ferns. What a nice companion this print would be. I am wishing. Nancy
His paintings are like a line from one of. John Demver’s songs~ going home to a place you’ve never been before.

I am decorating my mountain home in Glenville NC and it would be an honor to have Bob Timberlake’s art work on my wall. Thank you for offering such a generous giveaway.
When visiting my grandson and sitting on his bed each piece of furniture in his room is from Bob Timberlake’s retired collection of home furniture is like a visit to a museum. The painting would sure be a wonderful addition in the family room which also features a retired piece of Bobs collection. Such a talented man Bob is.

Love all his work!!!
Oh, I love him and his work! Read his autobiography a few summers back and it was so wonderful.

Beautiful work I would love to win his American Works.
Living just across the majestic Smoky Mountains in TN , I appreciate much of what Timberlake paints and and designs. I have never heard of his building birdhouses, but if he does I would be honored to have one. I have inside and outside birdhouses….about a dozen. Birds use some for raising families and some are just for looks. I would love to have anything he designed. I gave one of his paintings for a wedding present a few years ago. Keeping my fingers crossed……….!
This would make a beautiful for my husband & me. We just celebrated our 56th anniversary two days ago.mwe love to watch the birds in our yard. This is the second year that we have doves nesting on our pergola.
Being in the winter of our lives, my husband and I (We will celebrate fifty years of marriage this June!) travel only to see our GRANDS in N.C, so our backyard and swing have become our little piece of heaven.
He has transformed the concrete pad from an old utility shed into what he called a flat ,but I renamed Our Flatio, and has made flower beds surrounding it and has our swing and two chairs for visitors sitting on it.
How wonderful it would be to add a Bob Timberlake gift to our paradise!

I love Bob Timberlake’s work. I thoroughly enjoyed watching a documentary of his life and work a while back. The interview was wonderful. Getting to tour his studio with Bob as the tour guide was great. I am honored to reside in the same state he calls home. America needs more artists and craftsmen like him to help keep true Americana alive in hearts of future generations. I admire this great American and am honored to be able to enter for a chance to win. Thank for the opportunity, Phyllis.
What beautiful art work! I love birdhouses and live in a small country town. One of his houses would be wonderful in my yard. I love your blog and eagerly await it’s appearance!
Thank you for introducing me to Bob Timberlake and his work. I visited his website and saw the artwork that is being given away. Oh, what a beautiful painting!! I just added another destination to my bucket list – his gallery in NC. Also, love the pic of the birdhouses. I’ve started a collection of old birdhouses and attached them to our back fence – have been pleased to see that they are being “rented” by the birds.
As a side note, my older son is now making fine furniture. He took an early retirement as an electronics engineer to attend a Fine Woodworking course in Ft. Bragg, CA. There’s a lot of satisfaction to be had in working with your hands.
I love artwork and treasure my birdhouses and baskets that are handmade.
Mr. Timberlake shows the real America in his artwork. His art draws you in and you can imagine yourself there. Thank you for an amazing giveaway.

Thank you so much for sharing your story and appreciation of this American hero. I am a huge fan of Bob Timberlake, his family and his home town of Lexington, North Carolina. My husband and I bought two acres in Lexington and are planning to begin construction on a new home there. As a matter of fact it was Bob’s son Dan that gave me the name of our builder. If the BBQ restaurant that you went to was Whitley’s I am sad to say they have closed, but I highly recommend Lexington BBQ off US 29. Bob’s newest book Life’s Lessons is wonderful and has joined many other North Carolina books I’ve acquired since making the decision to call North Carolina our soon to be home. I believe Wildwoods would be a beautiful start to my future Bob Timberlake collection in my Lexington, North Carolina home and don’t you think it belongs in Davidson County. Thank you for your wonderful blog and sharing your life with us.
Love his work and enjoyed it when he was featured in your magazines. He does have beautiful collections!

Bob Timberlake is truly one of my Ametican heroes. Not only am I am blessed to have several of his cherry display pieces in my den and a dining room designed around his line, but what a treat it was to visit his gallery and feel so much at home. What a history to learn that his love of the furniture manufacturing industry came from his grandfather! When Bob Timberlake sold his furniture line and learned it was going to be made in China, he fought and kept the manufacture of the line in the United States. What an honor it would be to hang one of his treasured art pieces in my home, that of a true Ametican hero!
I have always admired Bob Timberlake —- whether it be his art, furniture design and especially his lifestyle and philosophies. I was so delighted when he was featured in Cottage Journal. To own a piece of his art, well, that would just be a joy!
Mr Timberlake captures Americana with such beautiful, precise detail. Our family of artists would be so honored to display a Timberlake treasure in our home.
Fascinating detail! I would love to own a piece of his art work.
What an interesting man – what a gift he is! Thank you for introducing him to me – I look forward to perusing Bob Timberlake’s website and appreciating how inspiring his work is.
I would love to meet this gentleman, and see all he has to offer, in his shop.

What incredible works of art. I would truly love a piece of true Americana from this brilliant artist.
Beautiful work, Beautiful person. Love his American Works.
