My Irish brother-in-law, William Kelley, paints Tuscan landscapes. For the past ten years he has lived six months in Florence and six months in Sarasota, Florida and I’m ashamed to say he knows more Italian than me.
He had a show in New York City this month at the Walter Wickiser Gallery.
William (aka Billy) moved to Florence a little more than 10 years ago to further his artistic education at the Lorenzo de’ Medici school. He was in his mid-fifties then and stuck out a little at the school where most students were in their 20s.
But Billy is a kid at heart, something that is echoed in the bold choice of color combinations that he uses. See for yourself.
