William Breedon is an artist who successfully straddles the past and present. The images he creates of American homes, their architecture and their village settings are of the present, yet manage to convey a feeling of times past -- a true sense of Americana.
A master of watercolor, Bill's technique might be best described as "refined detail", a style that immediately commands the viewer's attention, invites them into the composition, then detail upon detail convey the artist's nostalgic vision of past traditions still preserved.
Bill, who started painting in watercolor at the age of 10, has had a classic fine arts education, winning awards and exhibiting his work while still a student at Kent State.
Upon graduation, Bill Breedon managed to make a living through his art. Starting as a landscape artist, Bill began to include subjects into his paintings. After moving to Colorado, Bill became enchanted with America's past, seeing a vision of an America that exists perhaps only in the mind's eye. A vision that Norman Rockwell so aptly captured on canvas.
As Bill describes it, he has never had a "real job"; he has been making a living from his art from the very beginning.
