Billy Hensley

Artist Statement

" I try to stay true to myself, through my art . Painting is a way to express day to day subject matter. I believe a true artist needs not to explain their work. I leave the explanation up to the viewer. The viewer's thoughts and feelings invoked by a work are all that really matter."
