Bill James, pastel figurative painting
Bill is a B.F.A. graduate of Syracuse University and now lives and works from his studio in Florida. He was awarded the title of “Master-Pastelist” by the Pastel Society of America, “Life Member” by the Southern Watercolor Society, and “Dolphin Fellow” by the American Watercolor Society.
He is a member of the National Watercolor Society, the Transparent Watercolor Society of America and the Oil Painters of America. He was asked to be a member of the Knickerbocker Artists (once an exclusive art association consisting of only master artists) without showing a customary portfolio.
Since 1947, that has only been done one other time.
