my latest paintings

hi buddy! I apologize for being out of touch for so long..being told we need to move at the end of the year has increased my workload considerably! I'm still painting though, of course, and here's a new group portrait I hope you enjoy. I'm taking my time & aiming for perfection..will share these in depth as I'm satisfied with them. I'n the meantime I'm posting every day to www.dailyhairyartist.com as always.
Love,William

New paintings

Hi Buddy.. I just finished 2 sepia paintings I want to share with you today. I knew I'd be visisting my parents in August and needed to have some g-rated art to work on. I found Anton Chekhov (the one without the hat) and an unknown actor on My Daguerrotype Boyfriend. Anton is on claybord, 11x14 and the Actor is on 9x12 paper. I'll share a clearer pic of the Actor soon.
Lots of love from William

Love,William

new painting: Chagas in blue singlet

self portrait variations




Hi Buddy..apologies for having been away for a while..I have been painting and will have many new pieces to share with you..for the moment here are some self portrait variations I've been painting. The original was from  the happiest photo of me I'd seen in a while..so I made some archival prints on the same watercolor paper the original was done in. After spending time painting extra life into myself I painted first a "Howdy Dooit" type sunbeam behind me with dyes and watercolor, then made a "Mickey Rodent" version..and finally a Tibetan influenced version, watercolor including one with pigment ground from Sleeping Beauty turquoise.

new painting: Cop Salute in Copper

hi buddy..as promised, this is the first variation of my latest painting "Cop Salute". I wanted to leave the background white in my original painting so I made 2 giclees to paint the background on..I used a mix of copper pigments and transparent dyes with varigated gold and copper leaf. I ended up painting the Cop out wntirely again to make the colors more intense. I hope you enjoy it.
