William SimpsonWhen viewing Bill Simpson’s paintings there is the sensation of walking alongside him as he shares his favorite haunts with us. Together we search shoreline sandbars and rips where stripers and blues fight the tide with the safety of deep water near by. Or he may lead us above a wooded stream where dappled light rakes the water camouflaging undisturbed trout.

On land Simpson once again trains our eyes to a single moment where the light, color and atmosphere of a New England day coalesce into a snapshot of memory; triggered by something not seen quite that way before. In each painting he gives us a view, like a fisherman revealing his favorite spot, of a fleeting moment in nature.
