Bill Guffey is a
self-taught artist working mainly in oils with brushes and palette
knives. Now living in his native Kentucky, with detours through
Colorado, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Bill strives to bring life to
his landscape and urban paintings. He tries to convey the feeling to
the viewer that made him stop and paint what was before him.
enjoys painting from life, either en plein air or in the studio, and
works from photographs he has taken. Bill's love of painting outdoors
from life is what gives him the most pleasure. Fighting off bugs,
animals and reptiles (picture of Indiana Jones here), while enduring
extreme heat in the summer and frigid temperatures in the winter, add
to the character of both the artist and the artwork. The most fun for
Guffey is the ability to paint on location and the conversations he has
with other artists, curious onlookers and collectors. Bill has an
incredible sense of being blessed beyond measure.
