Really nice. Dreamlike and special. Just like the painter himself. Truth to be told, I actually like this painting slightly more than I like you. Forgive me.
All kidding aside, this one has great depth. A real 3D effect. Great job as usual, Bill!
Truly great. I love the detail and texture you conveyed. The forground earth looks almost photographic and the sky reminds me of brushed metal. Very nice.
Love your siggie, as well...a fantastic leap forward, batman!
Dude, this one belongs in a museum...seriously.
Really love the color in this one. The way you used your limited palette somehow makes it seem that there's more color than there really is. The variety of layering brushwork gives it a nice looking surface. This seems like "you" too. Perhaps you've hit a homerun?
Oooooh, that sky is very enticing.I want to touch it.
The foreground is very strange, in a good way. I keep covering up the foreground with a piece of paper, thinking that it would look better without it, but it doesn't. All parts of this are essential. And the whole thing seems to be firmly stitched together by those eerie palm trees and power poles.
Wow, this one is amazing!
nice nice nice one brother! very beautiful!
I like that sky! All the brush strokes look cool, and the colors are nice!"Pound my balls!"
You've just turned having a dirty mind into a great compliment.
Beautiful stuff Mr.Wray.For what it's worth to you I Idolized your work as a kid and LIVED for any issue of Cracked that had anything drawn by you, even if it was only those back cover portaits.My favorite cartoon of ever is: "my shiny freind" The paintings are great !
I really, really like this one! that sky is perfect.BTW- saw Korgoth last night for the first time...i fell in love with TV again.
Dan, I like you a lot more than the painting. The painting has a price, where as our bond is invaluable.
Thanks AW, Azusa feels like it has a fine coating of metal everywhere because of it's steel plant.
Wow, the scale and contrasts! Lovely!
This one really brings me back to my home town. Those grimy chemical sky's fill every memory I have of the small cow town of San Jacinto California. Congrats on another inspiring landscape sir.
Tony - I hope so I've got a ton of strike outs waiting for the belt sander.
Glam, To be honest I wanted to do the train station at first, but the weird sloppy poles are what sold me. When I found the view I though it looked like a sixties Dali influenced science fiction book cover.
Thanks Don, It's been to long.
Thanks Miles. I didn't adjust it, but there was something about it being scanned that enhanced it digitally.
i really like how loose the sky is - you worked this one out really well ...your paintings are totally amazing be they illustrative or purely artistic - great to see you loving life on canvas and paper alike!!!
Shawn , anytime hammer at the ready.
Erich- Yes I think I understand.
thanks SAG, So long ago, like another guy did that stuff.

Dirty Beauty: I don't think there could be a better title. Great job!
Hey Ryan, Glad you like it. I hope to convince Aaron to let me write on it. I've always loved barbarians.
Hey Miles, Painting is life isn't it? Please tell me it's living of some kind. I have to say I often enjoy it more than the real thing.
Beautiful painting Bill. I'm not one for analyzing paintings, I just know that I've stared at this for about 15 minutes in awe, like I am of all of your work, there's something about the way you paint skies that just puts me in a happy place. Thanks.You must be the only person who has people exclaming "pound my balls!" Now that's a man who's left his mark on the world... or someone's sack. :)
Hey BG , thaks I like play's on words.
Shhh Kaln, I'm a "fine artist " now that was my misspent youth.
You are one talented guy. I am one lucky student.
I'm a lucky teacher to have nice students.
