After a teaching career both at the high school and college levels, Bill Weldner moved to Madison County and settled in the beautiful Spring Creek area to paint for pleasure. His Spirit Series paintings illustrate Bill’s philosophical thoughts on the balance between polar opposites. This is brought out both in the subject matter and the technique. The location of his studio, a short drive from the Appalachian Trail, fuels his inspiration. Bill also welcomes local painters to twice a month discussion groups on a casual basis and welcomes visitors to the studio by appointment.
