Description all my life as i passed this sheep ranch on the way to Fort Bragg i have wanted to draw its out buildings ... for years the only signs of life on the road between Point Arena and Albion were saw mills and sheep ranches ...
Bill Hitchcock, yes Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My art is my journal of a life lived equally in remote Hawaii, the wilderness of Oregon, and on the Mendocino Coast of California.
With an MFA in etching from the University of California Santa Barbara (1967), I have retained my love of line using vine charcoal on stretched canvas in lieu of the toxicity of the etching process.
I have no lofty designs of reinventing art but merely revel in the joy of the process. My images are private observations and not executed with any other motives. What I present is art for myself. I enjoy the thought that the images may bring pleasure to someone else. With the exception of paintings I have gifted, I still possess all of my work.
