ARTISTS “DO” author
|There are reasons I decided to do this section of my web-page.
Several times in my life, I’ve found myself wishing that I could somehow have been the lover of a genuinely great artist who could have — and would have — voluntarily enjoyed artistically rendering my image, in one way or another, again and again; thereby providing me a certain immortality. However, I never seemed to have ended up in the right place at the right time with the right talented person.
With no such place, time, or artist, even lately having seen to be on my immediate horizon, and seemingly even less likely of making an appearance, as even more years come and go, I’ve decided it’s now or never as far as taking matters into my own hands — as usual —at least to the degree I see possible.
I’ve decided, nude photograph of me — at a younger age — in hand, to seek out various artists whose work I’ve personally come to enjoy, in whatever their particular artistic media, and ask them, using my photo by way of template, each to provide a work of art, in his or her own style, for an ongoing series of artwork to be collectively titled ARTISTS “DO” author WILLIAM MALTESE.
Therefore, as the weeks, months, and years progress, you’ll find, here, in this hopefully ever-expanding section, not only the original photo provided each artist, by way of hoped-for inspiration, but each artist’s resulting work, as his or her commissioned piece is completed.
