Ghost In The Library William Faulkner
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Here is my attempt to capture a likeness of one of America's greatest writers. William Faulkner wrote more than a dozen books that inspired future generations of authors. This is my first attempt to paint a writer who inspires me and whose work I love.
Faulkner's proficiency with words was unmatched. He was both ahead of his time, and one of the last great writers. Few since him have been able to express themselves or their stories with the kind of insight and literary fortitude that he had. One hope that I have is that viewing this painting may inspire people to read his work who have not in the past.
Recently this piece was awarded 2nd place in the Vandergrift Fine Arts Festival in Pennsylvania.
