Paul McCartney Paintings by Paul McCartney
This collection of Paul’s (William’s) art work includes over 200 color plates. The paintings are largely expressionistic, and often abstract. He brings to his visual art the same humor, enthusiasm, symbolism, and enjoyment that are present in his music. From the Memoirs, we read, “Whenever I paint or write music, whatever I feel, I do. That works. Some days the creative inspiration is musical; other days it guides me through paint.”
