William Cricket Ulrichis creating oil paintings
About William Cricket Ulrich
I move through Oakland at night taking pictures. I’ve started this off with two paintings of Lake Merritt. I read a book on Van Gogh and the night he killed himself in my book I went outside at 2am and took a picture. It’s what I saw the night Van Gogh died. I painted a vision of my neighborhood at night. I promptly sold it. Thus began a series inspired by Van Gogh. Everybody paints San Francisco. I paint Oakland at night.
