I love the sense of loose movement in this piece - great colors too!
so are we (liking this painting thing)!
this painting thing is tops i must declare!!
very nice and great blog!
Oooh Willie I LOVE it. More paint please!!!
Total looseness! Great paint!
Great color and texture. The hand holding resting atop the paper is especially nice, I think. Could look at this piece for an hour.
I didn't know you painted! I should visit more often. It matches your drawing style. Cool.
wow! hadn't been here in a while. love the color and feeling here and use of the space.
Keep painting, great hands and use of color. Thanks for commenting too!
Love the energy and the expressiveness! And your quote is great too!
You should really do more paintings. This is great!
yes the paint adds a lot - I like the way its operating somewhat independently of the drawing
This is excellent. Wish I had magic hands.Anonymous said that? I don't believe it! };-}
Top notch work Willie!
Nice combo of colors!
A much better total than mine!
Sometimes my soul is too crushed for art. That is when chocolate and peanut butter come in handy.
colors are a wonderful addition to your artwork's style indeed..8)
I agree with what loralee said...yes, chocolate. : )Beautiful painting. Simple yet intriguing.
u always had good line quality and now i see it carries over to ur painting. nice work
I like that your strong drawing style is not lost in your painting, but rather enhanced. I love the quote too!
this is great - painting of painting!
Very nice, colors and feeling are strong and yet so cute! I like it a lot!
Loving this tons, WB. And (because I have a junk-heap for a mind) made me think a little bit about Ben Shahn.Keep on painting!http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=Ben%20Shahn&btnG=Search&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&um=1&sa=N&tab=wi

Get your !@# into a gallery- if you haven't already.
Willie, I LOVE this piece... keep up with the painting... nice incorporation of line with color... a constant struggle for me. well done!
By all means... by any means... KEEP PAINTING. This is wonderful. The texture, the colors, the line, it all fits so beautifully. You are now the one with the magic hands.
Great quote and I'm loving your painting too!
Very nice Willy, but there is no reason to let life beat you down - set yourself free!
Very different style, and yet, I love it too ;)BTW, two weeks in a row being the first one! Wow! You are the best, Willie :)cabanadigital.com

Very nice colors. I really like the loose line work.
beautiful tribute and quote!
I really love your painting style, it complements your drawings well without changing the style much! Excellent!(this is Caroline, I can't remember my blog's name... I'm on Flickr too and I'm the one with the rodeo paintings)Take care!
This has got so much character and energy in it! Rather different I should say. I really seriously think you should continue with this, though I love your lines as well :)
HeyyyyyyyyyyyyA little color with those lines!!Looks great!(See you didn't need to drop acid anyhow);o)
Hey there,Thanks for finding my blog and checking it out--I found your blogs (they're so cool!!! I love your art and your message--the Homeless Signs and Happy 2007 blog were wonderful to peruse!) through your profile. :)Looking forward to seeing more!Take care,I.
wow, cool! I like it:) thanks for your comments!
i love that saying! art IS the reason for me to stay survive.
Hey, Willie, have always been a fan of your line work and your unique take on the subjects, now this with color, Awesome!
Hello Willie,I like this illustration much… Very different from the others! It's superb!Have a beautiful week!
thanks for the comment.and yea... its true i am the shortest of all my friends
Beautiful expressiveness! Love the textures and colors!
great movement with so few lines, love it!! thx for your comments and the guess on the gumballs too =)
this is different for you...i really like it!
Nice one big willie! The enjoyment is showing through in your work!
Willie, your hands are magical! You are a genius alright. Are you Ed? Reminds me of the story of the "Praying Hands" by Albrecht Dürer:http://www.ftmagic.com/prayinghands.htmlGreat work as always!
Very nice play off of the background...I'm one that doesn't always enjoy when a work gets too 'artsy'(I think sometimes people can try to pass off junk as art because of a lack of talent)...but this is not the case with your work...very sharp...
Wow! Your friend seems to have the hands of God! Cool illo
beautiful work. Thank you for coming over to my blog!
Interesting piece! It has a crinkled, choppie look, but at the same time is fluid, and beautiful to look at. I like the quote and the idea here.
Paint more! Especially the suggestive fingers!! :) :) (Is it just me?) Glad to see you painting. The world is now a better place.
Wonderful piece. Great use of color and loose styling. I wish I could loosen up a bit!
wonderful! Love the colours, composition and the ink lines...everything!
Your drawings are wonderful, and now your painting is AMAZING! I, too, have f.o.p. (fear of paint), but maybe a class is what I need, huh?Are you showing/selling your work anywhere? Because you should be.
I love the style andthe lines..also the colours are brilliant..btw If you want to add a little girl or a boy to your blog.. The site is:http://doll-doll.com/
This is beautiful, love love it!! Great design and very expressive!!
great job :o))
Hey WB! I REALLY like your paintings! I'm doing the catch-up thing, back online now and moved in. Your Fuck It Tree is splendid. There are so many goodies here, love your art outlook style.
Very interesting. Good interpretation of the subject, you are definitely better at this than I am. What I love best about it are the colors. You are really, really good at that painting thing :)
This is really cool. I love the colors. :)
WOW, you've been busy. I love the paintings and the 6 weird things.
Your line drawings are way cool! You seem to be onto something with this painting. Scrolled thru your blog - am still laughing about "boiling hairy corn". Thanks for stopping by.
I love the sensitivity of the line. Beautiful piece.
I really love your lines :)
i really really really love everything about this painting. very wonderful!
great style. Very UPA! if you haven't heard about this animation studio, look it up on the internet, I think that you'll like it.
Hey.. good work you got here.. I like your loose pen line.Thanx for your comment on my blog. I'm actually am not seeing the tournament as i have no cable at home, and been busy with work so who knows who will win.*I just like making fun of those shorts(skirts)
I'm loving this and that quote as well!
I love those hands! I wish mine looked like that. Maybe someday... :-)
Yow! Mine is the 89th comment? I'm sure to get lost!Beautiful illustration. I love the paint colors and the drawing and the sentiment. And I loved looking at the rest of your blog! If art reminds us we have a soul then your art surely reflects a beautiful soul of your own. Thanks. And keep on painting!

just a question... does nummer 90 get a present? Or are just saving it for the 100? ;)Keep on painting, drawing and being so creative!
I really really love this! The colors are beautiful and I like the line!
Love the lines and colors! Orange is my favorite to paint with.
the tracing is amazing, and I love the texture!
I likeit!.... contour drawing has so many possibilities... and your play with colour contributes well to the overall feel of this piece.
Great job and quote! I like the colour scheme too.
Very cool. Good words to remember, especially now when I'm headed to the studio. Nicely done. Love the over-lay lines.
I love your magic. Well done! Helge

I absolutely love this painting. My favorite of yours!! Lots of confidence.
Well I guess it has been awhile since I stopped by. I love that you're painting! Yet your unique line art style still shines through. That's a great quote - I've seen it before....
christ, I was going to say something, but it looks like it's been said. Must be happy with the response eh!
I really like your line style and you've incorporated this masterfully in this piece.
105 freakin' comments?I was right -- EVERYbody loves Willie.(And hey, you deserve the luv, bro!)
Beautiful. The paint thang is really working for you! I want this on the wall above my writing desk. The colours make me happy. I could be inspired.
