I heart Bill Traylor




Today I share with you one of my favourite art books that I have. Bill Traylor (1854-1939) first picked up a pencil and started drawing in his eighties and proved to be an incredibly talented artist. I was introduced to his work by my father-in-law who also made the wood cut of Traylor that you see to the right in the last picture. It's so inspiring to think that it's never too late to start something new.

You can get the book here.
