Our hearts have gone out to so many during the Covid 19 pandemic - jobs, hopes and even lives lost. There's also been the self-isolation bringing both hardship and blessing. Many artists and musicians have found income has dried up - but it is not all doom and gloom. For me there has been more time to paint, to develop ideas from sketches, to work on unfinished material and explore ideas through social media. We've had no meetings with the Redcastle Art Group but have kept in touch and encouraged each other through a special FaceBook page. There has also been the challenge of doing a portrait using FaceTime of our daughter-in-law Crystal in Kenya - 5,000 miles away! We had four hours on-line and then, using photos taken on-screen, finished it off in the studio. All took time but very satisfying! Lots of fresh visual ideas here now, so have fun looking through it and do get in touch via 'Contacts' above if you want any more information.

This is the William Mather Art website! Welcome!
This website is an opportunity to share work I am doing and have done - a bit of a glorified shop-window! And if you are interested in any pieces or in making contact please get in touch...
