is a blog dedicated to the paintings and drawings of bill bissett by archivist, friend and colleague Lenore Herb.

background and history for each entry will continue to have additions, if you have information about a particular entry that you would like to have added, please do so in the comment section, i will change info regarding collections, dates and sizes if you let me know.

for years i have been talking to bill about publishing a book of his paintings, but no publishers were interested. so i suggested one book at a time, self published, and i asked him what we should call it and he said “paint by umber”….. so, now you know the story of the name.
