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 been hugely challenged and have put their creativity to fresh use for income generation. For me it has meant more time to paint, develop ideas from sketches, 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. Now into 2021 and thank you Garve at Spanglefish for all the recent technical help you've given me. No more excuses for not doing regular updates! (February 2021)

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! These give an idea but it's really hard to convey the passion of a large painting with the tiny images here! But if you are interested in any pieces or in making contact please go to 'Contact' above and get in touch...
... and this is yours-truly in Jaffrey, New Hampshire in October 2019. This photo was taken by my cousin Tom Smith during a great walk near his house when Libby and I were staying with him and Margo. A wonderful place of many memories over the years! Thanks to all our American family - Smiths, Ayres, Ames, Fulstones and all!
