In Peter Williams Retrospective: Paintings and People Dear to Me, edited by Fran Taylor and designed by Suzanne Dornman, snapshots of dignitaries and friends (most with paintbrush in hand ���enhancing��� the artwork-in-progress) share the spotlight with the rich variety of paintings. From presidents to queens, jockeys to movie stars, dear friends and family ��� all get a quip or quote from Mr. Williams. Make no mistake, however, it is an art book and the paintings, over 160 of them, ofer a true artist���s view of the world. If you are lucky enough to catch him at a signing, he may draw a little sketch as he personalizes your book. He will be in the Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky areas through the spring racing season ��� with Keeneland and Churchill Downs already lining up signings for the big race days during their meets. He will also be arranging a U.S. exhibit for later in 2013 to ofer a group of his personal collection of paintings for public sale. ���After a while, you realize that you can���t take them with you and you bloody well aren���t going to live forever!��� he says with a twinkle in his eye. Don���t bet on this Kiwi to be cashing in his chips any time soon -- he���s having too much fun!
