  PhilipHoneWilliams.com (also sitsur.net) is the home address for a developing series of 10 to 12 large paintings by Philip Hone Williams. Each is approximately 4 feet high by 6 to 7 feet in width. The series title is Seriously Audacious Situational Surrealism - surrealistic subject matter based on specific situations.

Below are images of the current finished works and possibly an initial sketch for the work currently underway. To view them all, scroll down the page. The paintings are meant to be thought provoking images, but with a good smattering of humor.

Currently I am seeking a venue in which to show and sell the paintings. Any interest, please contact me at this email address:
