I’ve always liked this fellow, who is ripping up his own sheet of paper!

Good Morning All –

 

I know, there’ve been a lot of cats and not much else appearing in this blog lately. It’s because I’ve run into picture making challenges and have been struggling for traction. I’m beginning to gain a little now though, so hopefully you’ll start seeing a parade of new work here soon!!

 

Meanwhile, I just received a lovely photo (above) of one of my Paterson Pictures, from my recent Paterson Museum exhibition. It now hangs in a New York City foot surgeon’s office AND I AM THRILLED! When I delivered the picture, it was to discover the new owner has one hell of an art collection, which makes his purchase of my work an even more incredible compliment. Sometimes life is really good –  this is one of those moments.

 

Your Buddy Bill

 

PS: It was soooo nice on Sunday (in the low 50’s) that Reidun and I were out in our hammock! We had a sleeping bag under us, another over us, the winter sun actually had a little heat in it and we were cozy as could be! We’ve now managed to hang out in every month but February – maybe we’ll  bag it too. Was kinda weird to have summer hammock drinks and snacks with us while snow was on the ground!

Cute Winter Reidun

 

I couldn’t resist posting this – Reidun was so cute in the snow yesterday! And so Norwegian too. She wore this same snow suit to meet me at the bus stop after a big, old snow storm 29 years ago. It was our second date!

Hey ya =

 

A big old storm going on out there, but we’re snug as bugs here.

 

It’s a WONDERFUL day to hibernate in my studio, and as it happens, I’m working on a winter scene. It’s looking to be a pretty darned perfect day.

 

Here are four cats from a few weeks ago – all obviously versions of each other. They’re a particularly good example of how I so often do variations while searching for a the moves that will give me the drawing I’m reaching for. Sometimes I manage it, sometimes not, and just as often, I end up not quite where I thought I might!

 

I think the two in the bigger pictures are best but can’t decide which I like more. The smaller ones are the first two I did – they have some lovely loose moments too.

 

Happy weekend all –

 

Your Buddy Bill

A UNITARIAN HEADER

 

Hey All –

 

If you didn’t get down to the Paterson Museum to see Bob Demarest’s and my exhibition over the holidays, a large portion of the unsold work is now on display in a lovely space at the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, NJ. The show should be up until late February – at least through the 21st, though it may extend until the 28th.

 

As for gallery hours, the office (located in the building just next door) is open from 9:00 – 3pm on weekdays; if the space is not in use they can let visitors in. It’s always best to call in advance: 201-444-6225

 

Here is a link to the Society’s website, with directions, etc: http://uuridgewood.org/

 

If you’re here in the east, I hope you’re tucked in nice and warm, ready for a little honest winter storm!

 

Stay snug –

 

Your Buddy Bill
