This man is one of my most favorite artists. He is an inspiration in person, a joy to talk to. A complex mind with such a contrasting peaceful demeanor. He taught me how to use a plasma cutter and a mig welder and gave me metal scraps to make jewelry with. Bill has a new book out on his life and artistic perspective, and his paintings are apocalyptic and provocative. His art is on exhibit at the Missoula Art Museum and there will be a reception for him on June 19th, 2014, 5-8pm.
