Philip Ross Tyler, deceased American Western Artist. (1914 – 1983)

Phil Tyler, born in Mobile Alabama on March 18, 1914, Philip Ross Tyler. Phil was an Alabama flatlander, moved west and finally settled on a mall ranch at the base of Mt. Hood, called the Rolling-T”, the registered brand of five radiating “T’s” represents the five members of the family. The subject matter for Phil Tyler’s paintings comes from first hand experiences riding and hiking in the Sierras and Cascade Mountain ranges, as a well smoked chuck wagon cook, a dust covered wrangler, and a thoroughly exhausted mountaineer. These ventures have been seasoned building adobe houses in Mexico and gold dredging under the Alaskan Northern lights at the Arctic Circle. Phil was dedicated to the pioneer spirit that made and keeps America great, and to the men, women and four footed friends who still represent a heritage too rapidly being lost. He was a scholarship graduate of the Art Center School of Design, Los Angeles and the Famous Artists School of Fine Arts and Photography. An ex-commercial artist and contractor, he painted and taught art and photography full time. Memberships included the National Watercolor Society, the Watercolor Society of Oregon, and the American Artists Professional League. Reproductions of his work have been distributed internationally appearing on calendars, in the American Artist Magazine and interviews on radio and television have added to a widening recognition. Most recent shows and representing galleries include: Arnot Gallery in New York City,  The 1976 National Watercolor Society exhibition and traveling show.  The Governor’s Invitational showing, Capitol Building, Salem, Oregon. The Mayors Invitational, Salem, Oregon.

Philip Ross Tyler, 69, a resident of Parkdale since 1948, and a  nationally-known watercolor painter of Northwest scenes, died Monday May 12, 1983 at the age of 69, following a sudden illness.
