Biography: William (Bill) Paxton was born in Maine during the
depression and as early as he can remember he was always sketching. By the
time he was in high school he was winning contests and awards for his
talent. He decided there and then that he should pursue art as his career
but unfortunately there was no money to be earned at that time to put him
through college. So he joined the Air Force in the late 40's and in a short
period of time became a frontline military sketch artist which he did for
22 years. Upon retirement (Bill) returned to his native Maine and set forth
to capture the essence of Maine through brush and pallet. His acrylics and
watercolors of coastal, combat and transport scenes soon caught on and the accolades
soon rolled in. Now in his seventies Bill still paints with vengeance. He
shuns the spotlight and lives a somewhat hermitic lifestyle and is content
in that role. Today Bill Paxton is by far the #1 selling artist in Maine.
His art is sold all over the world and he has become one of Maine's true
treasures. - from http://www.maine-antiques.com.
