paintings in progress

Here are a few paintings that I've been working on for a while.

Big Girls Dance-paper and acrylic on canvas

Lions-acrylic on plywood


  1. Hey Willie,
    I like your new work. Happy to see you have a couple new posts since you were here, I check your blog often. Keep the pics coming!

  2. Your paintings (in progress) inspired me to make a little analysis. At first I didn´t get The Girls. Then I did, at least I think I did. One is different; eyes, colours, number of stars. Why the other two? You maybe had to paint the others for some reason, contrast maybe. You think somebody special but you won´t tell it to a soul... Correct? And then there´s something about 3 lions. Those are 3 times yourself. Correct? 3 pictures of Your narcissistic side (we all have that naturally). And colours also tells a lot. Colour of feelings and passion below, colour of reason in center and where the stars are there´s green of heart above You. Three Lions aren´t looking at the viewer or the audience. He looks himself like from a mirror.
    And He Is So Irresistible.
    I think I get the absurdness, kind of irrationality of the life You´ve been painting. There sure is much depht. Refreshing moment! Good Luck for You with everything!

    Best Regards, Granny LD

  3. Willie, you are painting the big girls now! Does this mean we are getting married soon?
