Ephemeral and Elusive

Light and airy, ephemeral and elusive, the apparitions of Gilbert Williams' paintings hint of overlapping universes. I don't have the titles of any of these paintings below, but do we really need them?

UPDATE: I had been misinformed about this artist's name, and I do apologize for it, to Mr. Williams and to all of you. Mark Roland corrected my information and I have corrected it above. Gilbert Williams is well-known and has a great selection of work available on his website which you can click to here. Plenty of information is available for him. Oy, sorry 'bout that.

There's something very 'Lord of the Rings' about some of them. Great stuff.

Hi Thom,
I especially like the one on the bottom, there is so much going on in it, and despite the asymmetry, it is in perfect balance, and the dark figure below the faerie spirits is equally intriguing.

Do you know anything about Gilbert White? This is the first I've seen his amazing work and I know nothing about him.

Thanks for posting these.

Sorry, Jamil, I know nothing about this guy, either.

His real name is Gilbert Williams. I used to show at the same Visionary galleries in the 1980s (Northern California.)

Thank you Mark. My original information source was faulty, and I screwed up by trusting it. My apologies to Mr. Williams.
