Coming Home to Paint

“Last Light” This scene could easily be confused with sea or river cityscapes in Europe. It is actually the village of Skaneateles, during an August sunset. 11˝ x 28˝

Bill has been traveling around and painting the Finger Lakes area for about 3 years, yet he feels like the surface has barely been scratched.

“This area is just so serene and beautiful that it is hard to express, but I keep trying,” says Bill. “Each lake is subtly different from the others, and if you look carefully, you will see that my color palette often varies accordingly with the lake.”

Retiring from his career in engineering in New England, Bill has moved back to the area where he grew up. He is beginning a new career as a painter, specializing in watercolor. In addition to his involvement in a number of central New York outdoor summer art festivals, Bill currently shows and sells his original works and limited edition prints at Handwork in Ithaca and the Village Gallery in Hammondsport.


Please feel free to contact Bill if you have any questions about commission work, show schedule, his work, or anything you see on his website www.fingerlakefootprints.com. Bill can provide a private showing if he’s contacted far enough ahead of time.

Send Bill an e-mail describing the location of your favorite view of the lakes and landscape in this area, and perhaps you will see it as a Mowson painting someday.
