I just found out that William (Bill) Shawcross died! This happened in September but I just found out by email from someone handling his art collection and asking me for names of some of the pictures he has of mine.
Back in the 1980's Bill was my Patron, he bought more of my work than anyone else. He also commissioned a few pictures and was a supporter and friend. He at one time had more than 100 pieces of my work (I do not have an exact count but I am sure it was 100 or more).
He was always happy to critique my work, to give advice and to promote my work. Though I have not seen him in person in many years, he will be missed.
