UP Puller

Here is a painting done for the SLO show, but it sold before I could send it to them so I don't know if it will even be in the show. 24x36 oil on Wood don't forget the shows I'm in...
on December second at the Segil gallery-->> See link on right
and Dec 9th see link for the Just Looking Gallery on the right column.------------->>>>>>

A special shout out and swish of the brush to Mark for mentioning me on Boing Boing.

Very striking image, the dark against light is very dramatic.

Miles yes, orange rules and yellow is hot! Black kicks Ass and Red is awsome. Brown however, sucks.

I imagine I could hop the BNSF train in Santa Fe, then jump off when it gets near your opening; but if I fall asleep I might end up in "Satan's Junkyard".

I always love your reds & oranges.
Oh, and there's always room for brown. Just not much.

Great painting- Easy to see why it sold quickly. Thought I'd pass on this link to a photographer's site I ran across awhile ago- Good stuff, maybe some of it’s your kind of thing.

Beautiful. You always seem to pick the perfect time of day to paint.

This is one of your best. Perfect sky. Perfect train [ once again, I like the lettering on the train for some reason ].

Your paintings are superb. For me, a good painting works like a snapshot of a childhood memory, and yours do just that.

Are you by chance related to a Matt Wray?

BG How did I know you would be the defender of Brown? I kid, all colors are great there are no "bad" colors. it's just how they are are used next to one another.

Marlo, I always try and be successfully masculine... My poor neglected feminine side...

Mark:Speaking of a soft feminine poetic side, you are a spiritual dreamer building a stairway to heaven. Not that thee is anything wrong with a sensitive guy or heaven, except I won't be going there.

Thanks for the link I have so many paces to go. I really want to visit a place were they tear apart ships for scrap metal.

thaks Mark , some thinks it's cheesy , but the glory hour offers contrast and rich color, who can resist?

True for colors, but pastels are too nice, neons too flamboyant, and plaid just can't be trusted.

Really nice. I love the foreground texture. Looks like it could be water...or not...well done!

Bill, no wonder this sold immediately; it is beautiful!!
I love the colors you used and I agree with AW about the foreground-you leave it to the viewer's imagination. Great work!

Beautiful stuff.
I haven't been by for a while, and my god! you've been busy. I wish I could be up in SLO for your opening--I'm sure it will be a blast. Your work is so inspiring, Bill--overused adjective, I know but what else can one say? They just make me feel good(and that's nothing to sneeze at).

Aw-- just a bunch of brushs strokes, best not fuss with dirt and small rocks.
