"Bill,I hope there is painting in Heaven...we miss you down here, but thanks for the inspiration. I usually drive around looking for a focal point in a context that will make a good painting. I try not to have a pre-conceived idea of what to paint…"

"Bill discribed to me how oil paint texture gets at 40° below and that he would go out to observe for several minutes and then come back indoors and paint a bit from memory. This was part of his bucket list. What a guy!"

Hi Bill! Thanks for telling me about this site. I just love to sit here and watch the slide show of your work. Great paintings!

Hi Bill, good to hear from you! You are the reason I joined up on this site. I figured if an artist with your talent is here, then I should be too. Yes, I still work in pastels as well as oils. Focusing more on oils now though. I have a question about this site . . . does an artist have to do plein air exclusively? or just those that are posted here? Because I do work in my studio as well - p.s. still love your work! Jen

Go figure! I was looking through some old reference material yesterday and was awed by a feature article on you and your work in 1980 or 81 and the first painting that pops up here is yours. Great to see you here (I was the first member to sign up when Don started the site). I look forward to following new work.

I, of course, have followed some of Skip's work but only met him last week end. He judged a small workshops paintings that were done at Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs.

Better my head that my mind. Thanks for the "heads up"! Best, Susan

I'm chipping away at getting everything going here. (Was in Portland where our son was given a medal by Portland Police Bureau.) I'll get my painting head screwed back on in a day or two. Am enjoying the exchange of ideas I'm seeing very much!
