William Rutherfoord’s work is graphic, painterly, urgent and timeless. Forces that seem opposing and contradictory, nestle like spoons.

Bill does not do editorial illustration for a living. He lives in Roankoe,Virginia where he paints pictures of the world from his basement. This piece is called “A great Shaking”. There are pictures of Bill and his basement from earlier posts here.  I promise to post more of his work as it gets passed to me.

Bill Rutherfoord, an academic and teacher for many years, now has the luxury of painting in his basement, in Roanoke Virginia.

All day long, everyday. I should be so lucky someday.
