Junco (no.166) and last week of Zullo Gallery show

10" x 10" / oil on wooden panel / 2017

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday celebrations this year and were able to spend some quality time with those closest to you (despite the piles of snow if you're on the East Coast).  This was a Christmas gift for my bird-expert girlfriend who has a particular preference for the small and fluffy types.  She takes great pains to feed, nurture and watch them with awe on a daily basis, so I thought I would give her one to look at when the other birds aren't coming to the feeder.

I also wanted to mention that these are the last 2 weeks of the 2017 Holiday Show at Zullo Gallery in Medfield (directions) and the last week that I'll have original work available in the show (I'll be picking up the originals for another show starting Jan. 2nd at the Newton Library but leaving behind framed / matted prints and notecards until the 7th).  Below are a few samples of some framed prints still available.  If you're looking for something to do on Sat. or Sun. from 12-5p, please stop into Zullo and check out the beautiful space and all the great work!

Medfield Holiday Stroll 2017

Please forgive the redundant email, but I wanted to send a reminder to my MA people (and non-MA people if you're so inclined) of my participation in the approaching Medfield Holiday Stroll this Friday from 4-9p.  My display will be located at the United Church of Christ on 496 Main St. and I'll also have some work up at Zullo Gallery nearby.  Original work, prints (plain, matted and framed), and notecards featuring work from over the past 6 years will all be available for sale (prices range from $4-$180).  Hope to see you there!

Latest Commission (2/2) and Upcoming Events

10" x 10" / oil on wood panel / 2017

The 2nd of two recent bird commissions (Pigeon / no.165) conveying a slightly darker tone than the first.  It allowed me to continue experimenting with bright, reflective coloring on wildlife - so much fun to work with.  I used a new addition to my oil colors, "Cobalt Turquoise", to achieve the glowing neck area.

I also want to announce a 30% off Holiday Sale starting today (Nov. 20) and running through Dec. 1 at my Etsy shop - applicable to any Giclee Print or Notecard Pack orders.  Check out what I have to offer here (product categories are listed on the left after scrolling down) and your discount will be taken off automatically when purchased - no code necessary. 

Lastly, I want to extend an invite to the upcoming Medfield Holiday Stroll on Dec. 1, where I will have original work, framed / matted prints and notecards available at 2 locations: Zullo Gallery and the United Church of Christ at 496 Main St.  I'd love to see you there!

Latest Commission and Zullo Gallery Show

6" x 6" / oil on wood panel / 2017

This is a recent commission done for a Wellesley local who came across my work at the Wellesley Free Library (titled "Mourning Dove - no.164"). She commissioned this for herself and a slightly moodier piece for her sister which I'll be posting next week. They served as emotional counterbalances to one another and I truly loved working on them both.

In other news, I'm heading over to Zullo Gallery in Medfield today to drop off 5 original pieces and 5 framed prints that will be included in their 2017 Holiday Exhibit.  The show runs from Nov. 18th - Jan. 7th (although my work will be taken down by Jan. 1st for the Newton Library show on the 2nd) and includes a ton of other talented painters and printmakers from the area. 

The Zullo show will be running concurrently with the Medfield Holiday Stroll, which is 4-9p on Dec. 1st (I'll have more original work, prints and notecards at the United Church of Christ at 496 Main St.)  

I've been printing, matting, framing, and signing up a storm in preparation for the holiday festivities and I'm really looking forward to them all - hope to see you there!

New M.William Fine Art Holiday Notecards on Etsy

I just released 2 variety packs of 6 matte finish notecards featuring paintings from my Small Works series. Both the Holiday Set and Everyday Set are currently available on my Etsy shop for $25 per pack. Each pack comes with 6 envelopes and every card is signed with a signature stamp on the back (in a color complimentary to the painting) below a small description of the work featured. They're blank inside and measure 5.5" x 4" - perfect for holiday greetings or just sending a quick note to someone you care about :)  More work coming soon!

End of Wellesley Library Show and Bullfinch Time-Lapse

I just wanted to thank everyone who made it to the WFL to show support.  I received so much helpful feedback and positive words about my work and sold about 1/2 of what I had up - thrilled with this outcome.  I also met quite a few lovely and interesting local artists / non-artists who I plan to keep up with for years to come.  Sad to see the empty walls, but now working hard to prepare for the Medfield Holiday Stroll in December and a show at the Newton Free Library in Jan. (more on those as they approach).

Here's a peek into the process behind one my favorite recent pieces "Bullfinch (no.155)"  You can plan on many more ornithologically inspired pieces to come...
