William McKeown

After retiring from a 30 year career in state government, I began watercolor classes.  It was a life changing step that opened a new world to explore.  As a fifth generation North Floridian, I grew up and still live on the family farm in Quincy, Florida.  From an early age, I was taught to preserve, respect, and enjoy the land and its beauty.  I try to express this through realistic paintings of the people, barns, dilapidated sheds, boats, and rural and coastal scenes of north Florida and the “forgotten coast” of the Florida panhandle.

I work primarily in transparent watercolor and continue to study through classes, workshops, and demonstrations.  I try to capture my subjects in such a way as to encourage the viewer to appreciate the history, work ethics, and natural beauty of our area as well as others to which I’ve traveled.
