Bus



Here is a tiny so- so painting. A bit over- worked methinks. However, I need to feed the blog while waiting for other paintings to dry.
6x8 oil on linen

I've also posted a few stealthy snaps from the Brandywine museum. I don't know why you can't take pictures without a flash with an amateur camera. It's just silly. All real museums allow it, its all promotion.




Artist I love NC and Andrew Weyth

Great light and interesting shadow. I am enjoying your 'Artists that I like'. So far, I've loved every one that you have chosen and some were new to me which is always helpful.

Love the bus.. just wouldn't want to be a passenger. Makes me think of the heat ... the L.A. summer oven that seems to be knocking a bit early this year. I relate to this on a visceral level.. primordial.

Texture and realism smash head on in Andy W's work, want to see them in person some day...Topographically they must be intense...Same with yours, Liepke, Wood and Kanevsky among a few others, I would love to hold a panel at an angle an see the mountains and valleys!

N.C. with those brush strokes...wow!


Does not seem overworked, your piece, but to each their own of course, but love the heavy "butter" colour sky and the shadow that seems to float the Bus in the atmosphere.

Hey Bill,

Sounds like the trip was good, especially getting out to Brandywine. Did you take the tour up to the old studio?

Like the bus and it's tilt--feels truthful to me. I've spent way too many hours on these things, myself. The diagonal, vertical and horizontal comp elements work nicely. Getting excited about the upcoming show.

I also appreciate the artists that you have introduced me to both here and on that other, unnamed place. {-:
