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. State Dept. of Corrections,  Division Of Industry,  Silk Screen Sign Shop. Bill has had had many art shows resulting in many sales.He Began showing in 1960 at local  art shows.  Bill has shown his works at The Vanerbilt Mansion in Hyde Park.N.Y., Marrist College of the same city.  He  shows  his  paintings  about every two years at the Ellenville Public Library and Museum of Ellenville,N.Y. with great sucess. Now trying online for more exposure.
Bill's Paintings are of old scenes, mostly of a time past of his home towns of Ellenville, NY and Napanoch, NY.

"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"
