LPAPA show Re- models and Shopping Cart

Here are two older Plien Air paintings I'll post just to be confusing. I recently almost totally re- painted them out of my head.
both are 6x8 you may remember them from the past.



I'm in with two paintings this year (not these above or below)
4th Annual "THE BEST OF PLEIN AIR" Show
June 5 – June 14, 2008 You can see them if Check the LPAPA link for info...

Oil on linen 12x16

Here is just a simple little one where I'm playing with color and pushing active design, to make a boring view interesting as per what I do. No story here, to be honest I forgot where this one was referenced.

Fantastic! I wish I were brave enough to paint shopping carts and blimps, even when I see them like you do--wonderful little subjects that we might otherwise overlook but say so much!

Cool! I like where you're going with the new piece. Funny ...I was just reading an article about lost shopping carts and thought that would make an interesting painting. You beat me to the punch.

My favorite part is that little palm in the background. It's a nice free flowing piece.

Hey Bill ! Long time fan, first time poster. I have always admired your backrounds on Ren and Stimpy and Samurai Jack. I am also planning on attending the Arts Students League.

I remember the Griffith Park one.. horse trail - umbrella shy 'ol paints. Excellent works all. Glad to see you're getting the deserved recognition and invitations to show. I'll be scouting my turf soon to have some locations ready for when you make a visit to the Second City.

wow, this is quite successful Bill. The lone shopping cart and the late sun hitting it is pretty dramatic...almost post apocalyptic.
