Thanks Partisan, but if this is art we are all in trouble.
PK, Thanks. I don't show too often down there but am occasionally in group shows. I'll keep people posted at my blog.
Rist, Yes put away the devil too and return to the fold of the righteous. Kidding, you can't go wrong by messing with traditional mediums. It will only help you digitally.
Lovin' the work as always.
Very interesting the way you are controlling things with the 'painterly' accident stuff. Very much part of the image rather than a decorative add on. Good stuff.
BTW, are these mostly acrylics?
From Gegarin's point of view
That's the joy for me Chris, finding magic in the accidental textures. Paul Bonner works in a similar way. Yes these are mostly acrylics. A few have oil glaze finishes.
Great works... your thoughts are clear & great!
"The Martyrdom of Nearly Saint Stanley"
I like to take sketchbook stuff and make them into illustrations as excercise.
"Maybe a Little Oil?"
With a name like yours, Bill, You must know what you are talking about. Thanks.
Trying to do my part to get 4.0 rockin' and rollin'.

Thanks Bill, Where's your chimp? Bet you get asked that all the time.
Eleyon, the paintings are for the most part acrylic. This recent "monkey one" is acrylic on copper.
Couple more paintings finished. Both are acrylic, "Tangled Lances" is on panel and "Panda Bomb Squad" is on copper.
Tangled Lances or Begin with the Sound of the Golden Whistle (the title the puzzle company will go with) will be made in to a high quality wooden puzzle. They make kind of interesting puzzles with unique puzzle shapes, hippos etc., and package them beautifully.
Beautiful new painting.
Thanks for posting. This place is in desperate need of high grade, pro work.
From Gegarin's point of view
Thanks Chris. Remember the good ole days here. When I first came FF was full of great pro work. It just sucked me in and I've stayed. Getting a bit discouraged though.
GOOD GRIEF! Your stuff just keeps getting better and better and better and better... LOL! Light-hearted characters, and interesting perspectives. You can just keep looking at them and seeing new stuff!

Thanks Hulk. I keep trying and at least I'm having fun.
Truly love your work! Such a unique style..
The mounted goat rider is by far my favorite.
Please keep sharing
My God Bill your work inspires the Hell out of me! If I ever come over that big pond I'm going to buy you a drink or two and shake you by the hand.

Thanks Memento Mori, the goat rider piece seems to be a favorite. it was originally painted as a poster/fundraiser for our Fish and Game here. I finished the painting off in my way.
Then by all means come across the pond AvP, thanks.

these pictures are like pieces of a dreamland universe, and i want to enter it and experience more. thanks for sharing
Love your movies Denzel. I live in a dreamland universe and occasionally come out to paint it for others.
Hugely endearing art style, excellent humor and undeniable talent. Love your work (honest use of a cliche )
I feel like it's really quite here in FF but I'll keep doing my part.
Around the holidays I try to squeeze in a few inexpensive commissions to brighten the season. These were all pretty quick except for "With Double Red Bird Turbo Drive". That was for Jon Schindehette and I got a little carried away. That seems to happen too often with commissions. So I limit the number I do. I have no self control.
"She Knew the only Hope was the Rare Suction Teat Climbing Pig"
For my daughter commissioned by her boyfriend.
"It'll Grow Back"
Playing with Clayboard
I do commissions with one, two, or three word catalysts
"With Double Red Bird Turbo Drive"
Your work is so great and creative. Very inspirational.
