Bill Rayner likes to create imaginative designs on a variety of themes, and paints mostly in acrylic. He likes to work in a series. One recent example is a series of nine acrylic paintings based on the scene in Van Gogh's Starry Night, but portrayed at different times of the day and year and under different weather conditions.

 

Currently he is working on two series. The Mountain series attempts to bring various Canadian and international mountain scenes to life after the style of Lawren Harris and Margaret Shelton. The Along the Trail series uses photos Bill has taken along hiking trails (both small objects and vistas) as inspiration for compositions which vary between abstract and realism.

One of his other creative interests is lutherie, having made four classical guitars and nearly twenty ukuleles over the past ten years.
