Introduction to Bill's Art World from the notes of my late wife Lorraine Winters 1933-2006 RIP
His life and paintings are concentrated on preserving what he
calls "The vanishing landscape. Self taught, he began painting in 1954. Bill was a commercial artist at Channel Master Corp. of Ellenville, NY for 22 years, He is currently a retired Industrial Training Supervisor in the Field of Silk Screen Printing at Eastern NY Correctional Facility at Napanoch, NY. Bill feels strongly about preserving the past. In 1977 and 1978 he published two book albums entitled "Years and the People" two volumes of the Catskill Mountain Foothills. He aims to produce the same flavor of the past in his paintings. "These days" he once wrote, "We often find ourselves frustrated by the complex social and economic demands. We don't take time to savor the daily joys of living. If we look back in time we may discover the peace and serenity of the good life. The relics of that time are all around us. Bill continues to put his visions of the past down on canvas.
About his art: Self taught fine art artist painter of the Fine arts for the ast 55 years of his 77 years. Retired industrial training supervisor in the field of Silk Screen Printing for the N.Y.

"Napanoch a place of grace
The land I have known
as a most beautiful place
Where my thoughts have grown.
A place where I draw and paint
the landscape scenes I have known"
