Michael William's Profile
I opened this store in August of 2011 (in tandem with my blog) with a desire to strengthen my painting discipline after putting art off to the side for way too long. My intentions for this area of my work remain the same as they were when I started: to paint on a small scale, not spend more than a few days on each piece, and to choose subjects that are simple as well as, as another painter has aptly put it in an interview, "foils for the real subject, which is light" (rest assured that the artist was not the self-proclaimed "painter of light"- RIP).
I view these exercises as genuine expressions of the pleasure of seeing. I consciously try not to imbue these pieces with anymore than the innate beauty of the subject and the many times simple but powerful emotions that it has inspired in me.
As I write this, I find that I have become more…
