I'm loving your site. I found you doing a search for Open acrylics, trying to find someone using them who was doing nice work, and you really jumped out. Wow. Sweet.
I like this one. Love the blues and greens, the almost underwater look of it.
Oh, and I didn't notice at first, but the composition is pretty cool too. Hidden in plain sight is almost an abstract composed of rectangles (almost Mondrian-ish, though not in terms of color, of course.) I like the way the right side of the telephone pole is subtly lit up.
Nice one, Bill! Looking forward to meeting you in Sedona.
simply beautifull! i love all your great composition,there is a tiny tension in your painting just a perfect atmosphere i can feel the street smell... great work! thank you for sharing your art !
thank you Lisa. Yeah I got to get back to them soon.
thatks Steve Imagine when the varhish goes on.
Oh S again-- Wasn't thinking aboput him but definetatly had my Der Stil phase of loving hnim.
See you there mIke!
Wow ...what amazing colors! I love this one!
Sweet nocturne, dude. That little figure makes the piece.
Love this picture. Fantastic colours.
You, your work, it's very inspireing. I feel your dedication...Thanks!
thanks K-- tried to put"just enough" in this one.
Thanks LS, TONY, Steven and Bill
Love this night scene...Why isn't the guy flipping you off??? (LOL)Next time I go to one of your shows I will make it a point to say hi!
M -I don't know because he stared hard at me the whole time.
Wonderful abstraction to this piece - love the square & rectangular shapes.
Used to photograph all over LA, people leave you alone as long as you show respect. Show fear, and you are a mark. Being from the LBC, I dont have the problem. Imagine me as a 20 year old, in good shape from basketnball, but head under a cloth while focusing my 4x5 on a tripod and reading the light, in an old beat up VW. From junkyards to industrial areas, but no hookers. They were all up on Sunset. Now in the back of LA Weekly as "escorts" and and massage therapists. Though seena few late at night in the CPT. Hope to get to your show next weekend. Gonna hit the Getty for the Irving Penn photos the guy at LACMA on Fire blog hates so much. Mom went to school with him. And the Truth will out, keep on hitting em at CultureMonster. Time for the "Silent Competency" to speak out. Some one has to give a damn. As the wife says, Stop me when I'm wrong!
William, you do big sack water down of a dry well with your paintbrushes.Every picture is an intonation and a different approach.It is the most important thing.Not to bore the people.My congratulations.Regards.
Like the way you divided the frame into rectangular compartments. Would like to see the cubist treatment of this. Working magic with unfriendly greens to set a mood for a very urban story.
any chance of you doing a painting of the Ballon Boy?:)
Intriguing painting. Soothing interpretation of a charged environment, perhaps.Found your blog via Lesly Finn, who is mending well, btw.Are you familiar with the work of Zoe Strauss? Your blog subtitle reminds me of her photography and the I-90 Project.
LOL... at they're only flipping off. Love the capture of the magnesium city lighting in this scene.
William!I love this!Green is most favorite color so I love the verdant tint to this painting.Really nice job capturing the effects of the streetlight on the sidewalk.A very moody, dark, somber,and beautiful piece!-Dean
Like the greens, love the story. Wish I had crack whores flipping me off!
Hope you are having fun in Sedona!
Very nice, as usual, Sir! Love the color and light.
I have to say this new one is a complete triumph.
thanks CV and skim.
Donald I've never been worried, just embarassed. I do feel guilty sometimes prying on lives...
thanks Wk-- still ploding slowly to Abstraction... who knows if I will get there?
Glad I can help with your art thurst Vicente
great, inspiring as usual
