About me

Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Artist/Author
Location Upstate New York, United States
Introduction I am an artist and instructor of several media, including Oils, Watercolors, Acrylics and Pen & Ink. Published author of "WILDLIFE LANDSCAPES YOU CAN PAINT" ( NorthLight Books ) Instructional Dvd's also available. Art is a passion. I love being able to take a "blank" surface ( either canvas, paper, whatever ) and turn it into something of value, both emotional and monetary. It literally means creating something that was not in existence up 'til that moment in time. That is a powerful accomplishment! I have posted a photo of "Final Rays", an oil painting from one of my Dvd's. Check out my website : http://www.wilsonbickford.com
Interests My main interests are definitely Art and Music. ( I also play harmonica and lead guitar in a Classic Rock band. ) My hope is to pass either ( or both ) of these activities down to my grandson.
Favorite Movies I don't have any particular favorite, but anything in the sci-fi, ghost, paranormal genre is right up my alley.
Favorite Music Blues, blues, blues! Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Albert King, ...it's ALL good!
Favorite Books I'm not so much a book reader, per se, but I DO love to read. Mostly magazines, such as Guitar World, Guitar Player, American Artist, The Artist Magazine, Watercolor Magic, etc. Anything I can learn from.
