Providences of Laughter, Love, and Joy
By Bob Timberlake & Mark Erwin
Collectors of aphorisms, tales, and inspirational quotations for many years, renowned artist Bob Timberlake and Ambassador Mark Erwin became fast friends during a dinner party, where happenstance sat them together. Swapping stories and laughs, they discovered a mutual devotion to God, family, friends, and country, and a passion for the sportsman’s life of hunting and fishing, conservation, and dogs. They took up their conversation again after dinner and it continued through Life’s Lessons: Lines of Wisdom from a Faithful Stream, their first volume together, which was instantly and surprisingly popular.
In Headed Home, they pick up the trail with customary good humor to explore such themes as personal fulfillment, heritage, mortality, faith, and the blessings and wonders of dogs, pairing favorite lines of wisdom with fifty-seven Timberlake paintings, many recently created.
Bob Timberlake is an internationally acclaimed realist painter and designer who makes his home in Lexington, North Carolina. He married his childhood sweetheart in 1957 and has three children and seven grandchildren.
Timberlake’s art career has been marked by consistent and resounding success. The first one-man exhibition of his work was held in 1970 at the Gallery of Contemporary Art (now SECCA) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The show sold out immediately, a first for SECCA.

Recipient of many honors including Long Leaf Pine from the state of North Carolina, he has served on the boards of over thirty civic, charitable, cultural, and educational organizations. He and his wife Joan, their two daughters and three beautiful granddaughters, and Dolly, their Lab, all live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
