No Drama


As you guys know I've been doing some very urban studio subjects and felt like a change. Despite this spot being next to the 134 freeway, I was trying for something a little more pretty than the usual. This is a soccer field in Burbank close to the LA Zoo and the last on ramp painting I did. Very relaxing day without the Class, just J- Mac and some guy who kept walking back and fourth next to us for exercise. 6x8 oil on linen on wood.

I have a soft spot for trees. And a fine set of trees this is.

Nice painting, Bill. I've always especially liked your paintings of nature, seascapes, and trees. It seems to come naturally to you. Your trees have personality.

Love this, Bill. Funnily enough I have just started a woodland scene .. not my usual thing at all. Not ready to post yet tho'!

Your trees look great and there is a lovely peaceful feel to the whole thing .... hard to believe that its near a free-way!

Thanks Tony I guess that's one of the benefits of having a little to much personality like it do. If you can put it on the canvas once and a while instead of being just annoying to everyone.

The tree, the park, the vista...

The scene looks like the perfect spot for a picnic with your sweetie...

just ignore the adjacent freeway.

i don't think Williams likes himself these days - he is sooo cool by the way - a real mentor to many many many people who all want to make his dick hard and shiny like crome so they can all learn how to draw gleaming metal like he does - i was at his place last night and all i can tell you is that i am presently cleaning my studio humbly
