Williams says that it takes time to get to know a place well enough to be able to really paint it. He says that you have to build up the knowledge, the experiences and the emotions about it and develop a pictorial vocabulary to express them.
Williams is one of the leading American artists living in Japan.
He is the first American to have over forty shows at the Takashimaya Department Stores where some of the most important art exhibitions are held in Japan.
