About Bill

I've been drawing and painting since I was in 4th grade. I now paint only in oil and mainly do landscapes. I am in a gallery in my local area and am looking to branch out. My favorite artists are Inness, Levitan, Edward Seago, Shishkin, Schmid, Fechin, Sorrolla, and Sargent. If you'd like to see more of my work, go to or

This is a 16 x 20 plein air painting of the Fox River painted on Wednesday July 13, 2011. A demo of how I painted this is on my blog:

It's too hot out for me, so I decided to do a studio painting this time. It's a 16 x 20 oil on canvas.

This is a farm about 5 miles from my home. The barn is abandoned. "June Farm" oil on panel 17 x 24. Digging the palette knifeand the textural effects it gives.

Fox River, May 27th

A plein air oil on linen painting I did las Friday of a swollen Fox River near Mooseheart in Illinois. There were mallards everwhere that day so it was quite a feast of aeronautics and a symphony of honks and quacks. Hope you enjoy it.
