My name is Bill Buckley and I would like to share with
you my enthusiasm for painting. Through the forty
years I have been painting I have found countless
points of inspiration allowing me to work in various
mediums. As a painter I work mostly in acrylics, oils and mixed media, but I also enjoy drawing, printmaking
and sculpture. I am interested in contrast in colors,
the geometry of lines and circles, and visual imagery.
My influences are many, and include Picasso, Monet,
Gauguin, Botticelli, Magritte, Hopper and Dali to
name a few. Much of my subject matter comes from
inner visions and dreams and looking at the world
though an abstract eye. I have recently been painting
more on location and I use the Martha's Vineyard
scenery as inspiration.
