A little bit about the artist - William A. ''Bill'' Wesling Jr. was from Sharon Pennsylvania. He moved to Salt Springs and had a secluded studio in the Ocala National Forest. He studied under notable teachers such as Pulitzer Prize winner Vincent Nesbert and John Jellico who was the director of the Art Institute of Colorado. Wesling's work has appeared in more than 80 national publications. His prints and paintings have been sold in galleries and frame shops throughout the United States. ''Each of his paintings not only portrays in fantastic detail the wild, free creatures but contains a hidden story - an instant from their lives,'' said Jellico in an informational brochure about Wesling. The wildlife paintings by Bill Wesling span more than four decades of the 20th century and portray a range of subjects, from Florida panthers to birds, and wildlife. Bill Wesling passed away in the fall of 1990.
