I love this Bombay Beach series... It's always thrilling to see the little sparkles of surprising color in that drab urban scene...

I'll try to make the group show... maybe this time I'll say hi... (you were swamped with people during the show in Santa Monica.

I really, really like this Bombay Beach painting! Pretty pastel colors in a not-so conventionally pretty scene, but a beautifully complex comp. The rounded-corner shapes are mixed in with the square-cornered ones in a way that reminds me of primal beasts hunkered down and who might shift their positions slightly if one looked away for a moment.

I love the lonely building--it reminds of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Another trailer park great. Lov'n the horiontal rhythm in color and value. A pamper strewn parkscape transformed.

I never stop enjoying the way you use color, Bill. By the way, I wanted to comment on "On Nothing Art" on your rant blog, but couldn't. As one who struggles every day to achieve something worthy, I thank you for the statement.

Too bad you aren't also a food painter. I'd ask you how you do with macarons.

v this is the original post- Interesting you mention that, I did paint out a big element in this painting after I had it shot and had to have it re- shot. Less is more

I enjoy the Bombay Beach series. Our family has a home about ten miles north of Bombay Beach and your work nicely depicts the stark, quiet landscape of the Salton Sea. Nice work.
