Hey Bill. If I was buying, I'd probably go with the top one if I had first pick. Although, I'd take all three if I had the cash.
You are a growing inspiration for me...You are in a very interesting path from impressionism to abstract.It would be a pleasure for me if you see my work and tell me some words.Please give me a chance:http://nachofrades.deviantart.com/gallery/#_browseMy email is: firstname.lastname@example.orgWarm Regards...Nacho Frades.
I really like where you're going with these. To me it seems like some of your cartoon painting sensibilities creeping in, and that's exciting to see. My guess is top as well, but they're all superb.
Great Stuff!I'm thinking the bottom piece sold right away. That one really pushes it.
Great work again William, personal favourite...the middle piece. All the best, Steve.
They are all stunning, William! I especially love the last one. That orange just really pops in that one. Congrats! Stay on that train!
Well, you do like trains... They have an authenticity I find lacking in a lot of abstract work. Wish I could see them in person. Good painting! How large are these?
William, i found your work via your comments in illustration art blog. i really like your paintings. i'm surprised you think of these as having an 'abstract' quality though. to me they're still representational.excellent stuff.
Bottom painting? All have the Wray signature color flourish which is quite unique. You do abstract well - no doubt the formal underpinnings have served well for any format you do. Cheers all the way!
I'd say the bottom one! Awesome paintings man.
Damn! These are awesome Bill!
I'm guessing the third one also, I like the bright green underpainting--it really catches the that sodium-glow feeling of neon and street lamps.
Nice work William......Nice to see that you're using your impressionistic and cartoon styles to REALLY loosen up in this semi-abstract way. I'd say the Bottom One is the most advanced and more developed of the 3 pieces...that's where I'd put my money...IF I had any...LOLKeep Exploring, you're on the right TRACK for sure!
By the time I scrolled down to the third one, I was thinking how abstract you're getting. You're making a good case for everyone to loosen up. You seem to have sold all three to this crowd, but I'll go with #3. You should go further. Can't wait to see where this train runs!
LOVE all of these, but my very fave is the top in terms of both color palette and compositional dynamics. Congrats on the sale (I take it that these are relatively big pieces?) makes my 'widdle' heart glad to see you doing good!
I will say #3 Wow!
My guess would be the third one as well. I'd love to know how big they are. Good stuff.

Everybody loves a quiz, a lot of you are right!The paintings are mid-sized about 24x24 on the average. My theory is really good abstraction comes from evolving design to pure expression. If you don't see abstract at least in corners of these works, your definition is a little rigid...
Congrats on the sale--and cool paintings! Guess you've been busy....
Love these colors, Bill!
I have always enjoyed the abstract nuances of your work. I think these are a breakthrough for you.You are definitely on the right track...
I like all of them, but I think the third's got the most interesting abstract result.
I'll guess the last one as well-- that's the one I'd buy first. Love this direction... very cool.
All of 'em...but I liked the middle one!!!Wonderful!!
I really like these
Continuing to evolve I see? Looking great, I like this new direction!
Love the purples. I just realized a little while ago that it's sometimes cool to use purple or blue for shading instead of gray.
All a big wow. WOW!
Thanks to everyone who commented. You guys and the collector have given me new creative fuel. The top one is the one the collector snatched up. She thought the bottom one was to dark. The middle she didn't see... I shows that art is subjective as my favorite is the middle. ;-)
Those last two knock my socks off.
I absolutely love these.
I love the top one the best!-Dean
