Bill Shields

We have previ­ously posted collec­tions of Willi Baum and Dick Moore and most recently, some of Earl Thollander’s Chinese cooking illustrations.

Here is a showing of Bill Shield’s commer­cial art from the years: 1961 to 1975

Now, exam­ples of his fine art (with views of his workspace-easel with art in progress).

Bill and family lived on Pine Street in San Fran­cisco. In time, by re-building the home, it became the “Artists Inn” – with warm B&B hospi­tality and it was deco­rated with Bill’s paintings.
Bill also remod­eled the building at the rear of their prop­erty. It was Bill’s studio and orig­i­nally had spaces for other artists. Later, it also became an addi­tion to the inn that welcomed visi­tors to San Francisco.
