After some 29 years on Madison Avenue, I’m finally re-discovering my first love – painting. I was a fine arts major at R.I.T., and moved to NYC in 1978. I soon married, raised a family and began looking for work as an illustrator. I found work drawing storyboards for TV commercials. Eventually, I was promoted to Creative Director at a large New York City ad agency. I moved to California in 2006, and ended my advertising career in 2011.

I’m now in Jacksonville, Oregon with my wife Cheryl. I paint in oils, and greatly appreciate the work of Edward Hopper, Eduard Manet and John Singer Sargent.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. “William C Whitney | Paintings, drawings (and other stuff)” ended up being a beneficial blog.
    If solely there were a lot more personal blogs like this excellent one on
    the actual world wide web. Nonetheless, many thanks for your
    precious time, Meghan
