This collection of forty paintings by Raymond Wille features some of the landscapes, still lifes, and abstracts that he painted in his life.
Ray's landscapes depict woodsy scenes in both New England and the Pacific Northwest.
Ray enjoyed rural places and usually lived on the outskirts of a small town, choosing to live a simple life where he was able to remain in touch with the land.
Flowers were often the subject of his still lifes, and he worked as a landscape architect and was an avid gardener.
He painted his abstracts as a warm up for the landscapes, yet many of them are works of art in themselves. They are full of color and movement and can be interpreted in a myriad of ways.
Overall, Ray was able to take the beauty that surrounded him and transform it into both realistic and abstract images, and these images depict how versatile he was as an artist.
