Thank you John for bringing back some things and reminding us of others. To say he is a painter’s painter is almost damning with faint praise. His work was immediate and it stayed with you. Wonderful painter.

Western Canadian painter Jack Bush must also have been a great influence on Bill’s work.

His pictures show us how play can be majestic and do so with a superb, tender colorist’s touch.
This big hearted artist of the prairies.

I was broke and had to camp in the woods. He kindly gave me his paints to use, invited me out to his studio and house afterwards. His daughters bought some work which enabled me to journey to Edmonton and the west coast of America. Kenneth Noland was at the workshop and had visited Bill prior to me calling in with Canadian painter Gerry Faulder. Noland had cropped some of Bill’s paintings so that the planes of colour anchored themselves to the top – which had the result of bringing them up front more, away from the more seductive floating that he often favoured. He was looking at them and giving them time to settle. It has been enjoyable seeing glimpses of them in London periodically since then – would be great to see a big retrospective . Enjoyable reading.
