EXHIBITING MEMBER ARTIST
 

  
JIM McCLURE

 


J.W., also known as Bill, Luitwieler has had a lifelong interest in art.  As a kid, he dreamed of and drew cars, wishing someday to be a car designer.  He excelled in the art classes offered at his high school.  Then, reality set in and he ended up going to work to make a living.  Bill tried oil painting with a kit about twenty-five years ago.  He enjoyed mixing the colors and working with that.  Then, he put it aside when his first child was born.   It was not until recently that Bill rekindled his art interests again.

Bill was inspired by a friend and artist Jackie
Bowker, who now resides in Grants Pass.  He watched her as she blossomed into an accomplished artist.  About three years ago, Bill decided he should get back into painting.  He is self taught and enjoys the association art demonstrations which he attends as often as his work schedule allows. 

Currently, he paints with acrylics and sometimes uses them as watercolors.  Landscapes are his first love, but he is fascinated with architectural pieces and occasionally enjoys floral painting as well.  He is inspired by the coasts of Oregon and California.  A commission from the Wild Coyote Winery in Paso Robles is his latest focus.

Bill has sold several works and is currently planning to be represented by the Visions Gallery in Morro
Bay.  As an active member of the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire, he received four ribbons in the 2005 AAie Fall Art Show.
