Gorgeous...lovely splashes of light. Love the hint of blimp...a nice companion piece to "South Connector."

I never get tired of gazing at you paintings, Bill!

Love the painterly appeal of your work and your sense of color and composition. Saw your work in Art Collector first.

if you want a daphneyland basset hound t-shirt, go to my e-mail in my profile and leave your address and I will mail you one. I have been giving out the personal ones I screened. Blood sweat and tears involved with each t-shirt. took a while to figure out silk screen process.

Dear painter of blimps: I am as excited with this one as your previous hwy. scene with blimp. Anytime a painter looks into and paints the glare, I love it!

I would so love to be inside your head while you paint a piece and understand how you see the light and colour. Your ability to turn a mundane scene into beauty always amazes me.

Trying to find my way back into painting again, I find myself studying your work and will continue to do so.

Yes, a good kind of ill . . . inspiring stuff man. I know my work and approach to things is much different than what you do, but you're colors and brush work really inspire . . . awesome piece! . . . I still feel sick.

Great painting Will! The summer look for me and one stop west of your new show. Can't say I miss the heat but the PA treks were all the rage.

Hi Bill,
I am sorry I didn't make it to the show.
I'm Bicycle boy of late, and didn't have the trek to Monrovia in my little whithered pins.
I hope it went well, I know everyone there had a treat for their eyes.

Really beautiful Bill. I've only ever been to LA once, and this painting says brings back all my driving memories! Great sense of light and that ever so hard to do "spill" effect when looking towards the sun. Love the cyclist too.
