Worth a second and third look - and perhaps much and many more also as due to the patterns of compelling complex imagery as all within the highly original fine arts designs - the artworks of drawings and the other related arts works as by Bill Perkins speak volumes of content no less too!
Just take a recent composition of Fairy Houses as by him as for a breakdown of parts of the project so far completed: 1) "Stumptown Lodgings" so titled small black lined drawing completed within some 2 days as started as an art demonstration at The Bohemian Treasures arts crafts store located in Beaverton, Oregon one Saturday afternoon in the Summer. 2) Later the design of a small drawing in black lines titled as "Dandy Gnome" completed at Artists Studio as a companion piece to the first drawing. It is incorporated with the first drawing in a next project covered as in 3) Fairy Houses large copy representation of Breakfast time with coffee and pie in Stumptown, Portland, Oregon scene. The Dandy Gnome takes its place in the far reading corner opposite of Stumptown Lodgings fairy house depiction in it as at the immediate left of it. 4) Fairy Houses is now in the process of being colorized completely as by the Artist for a new version of it to be then designated as a "Fairy Houses Variation" to be posted to this site when it is done.
So keep watching this website as for new important upgrades, Blog entries of insightful arts history as such along with poetry and related arts topics as all by this Artist? Seek and find then that too - and even more as for that second and third look soon - and perhaps even then also very much more as well?
STATEMENT: "Art is all about a good difference to our very lives - for when art changes and moves us all with its direction and logic of objectives our own lives are very much so transformed!" - Bill Perkins (as literally so quoted). Art so therefore makes a difference as for change in the world today by powerfully bringing us all together to yet well improve our very lives and the environment decently and also positively for all as it is really perhaps so intended to. Do you get this? A true Master of Arts is one whom perhaps influences us by allowing us all to participate as so in such transformations as such too. So it is very powerful as to keeping to these ideals everyday and therefore expressing them as a discipline in products and it is a professional Artists greatest responsibility that may so better all with those ends mindfully done. But how now do you respond to just that? Does it make you think? What would you say to it? I hope you indulge me for the specifics just on this? Art is for everyone!
ABOUT THE ARTIST: So it is that Bill Perkins is an artist who hails from Portland, Oregon presently. He has completed many important and major arts projects. He thinks so - and has the proof of it! This is where to find this one's works. I hope you enjoy it. So welcome to it too!
It is perhaps important that you don't confuse him with the others of same name too readily as there are, or maybe quite a many few or several of them as is? That is okay. Sure enough that might be too?
Would you like to go directly to the pictures now? You may! Or read on for a lot more?
NOTE #1: See Blog "J" here online for a great slide show of this artist? And thereon read more for it all too? Also discover number puzzles, domino puzzles and some poetry herein this total Blog site of files by him too. Bill has a lot to share! So enjoy!
HIS BACKGROUND: About his background now? It takes a lot for some fantasy art to come to fruition as you might suspect for sure! About as much to attend with all in ones present for it too? So he happily works at a job for taking attendance for mental health patients in a local day program in downtown Hillsboro, Oregon that runs a regular 4 days a week. Has been keeping this important and helpful job for more than 5 years now and counting too. You might see it helps him to continue to better survive in this our countries awful down turned economy? Also he is a Volunteer Activities Director for more work with the company for movies and games with music appreciation there amongst his helping with it for fun and experience too. So he does share a lot? Certainly!
FINDING THE ARTS AND ARTIST: So about the arts and this Artist? Much is in this background. He perhaps makes it no mystery and lays it out like the artist he is now? He also likes using technical pens on poster board such as bristol board and he colors his work with fine colored markers too. It is very intense!
THE WORKING MODES AND HIS PHILOSOPHY OF ARTS: It is no small thing that is a philosophy now that the Artist as a competent working agent of artistry should be a good arranger and composer for the arts whenever it is in practice as according to this one. Find it in typical examples of these works herein? Therefore as much as something like as in the music for arts as a topic should be relevant as such and so basically instrumental as for arts activities as well with other such related types of arts of kinds as they might so pertain also? For they all have the message of "amusements" per examples as they do entertain us? So arranging parts of compositions of depictions and composing properly such all so too is to be considered a very deserving and likely medium sort of thing in relation from a 1 arts to another 1 as a serious undertaking wherever it may be present and deserving for the artist also. NOTE #2: See herein the "Squashington Square" and "Game Triangle" parts of that as for some true classic references by examples of arranged subjects with composition types also? So it is that the hats of "Arranger" and "Composer" should now always be as really evident for this artist typically too! Do you then perhaps find it as in his works with your keen study of that all for it too? You might if you do look! So do look?

Do you know of any of them? I would!

This is all about better and further relating now as by being transformed with fine arts medias! Perhaps the position of the 1 who experiences or participates with that is understated too? But anyone is counted in with that! There will be many more soon to come! It is to be certainly guaranteed as more and more discover this special site?
