Frank Wilson Featured In Chico News And Review

Painter Of Night Lights
Paradise artist brings the stars inside


By Vic Cantu

Paradise resident Frank Wilson leads me toward the doorway of his walk-in closet for an artistic "magic trick". The closet is huge: approximately 10 feet by 6 feet, neatly organized, its walls and ceiling painted a pleasing, flat white.

"I invite you to please come in and close the door, then shut off the light," he says very cordially, in his Boston accent.

When I do so, a seemingly impossible scene comes to life in the pitch blackness. All four walls turn into an extremely realistic night sky�the kind one marvels at on the clearest of romantic, summer evenings. Stars by the thousands, of all sizes and groupings, adorn what was previously the plain white interior. Toward the far end of the ceiling a shooting star has left a green, foot-long trail. As three or four minutes pass, the four-foot-long Milky Way galaxy above, itself...

Frank Wilson Creates Dinosaur Illustrations As Prints

Paradise, California artist, Frank Wilson, has never outgrown his childhood fascination with dinosaurs even though he is now in his sixth decade of life. "Dinosaurs had to have been such incredible creatures and we know so little about them" said the artist. The artist is creating a series of original, hand painted dinosaur illustrations, which he then photographs and sets into a photograph of a landscape.

After much research of fossil skeletal remains, each dinosaur was hand painted in gouache and acrylics on Crescent 300.3 Illustration Board. After photographing the dinosaur painting and superimposing the painting onto the landscape photograph the entire composite image was digitally tweaked for realism. The artist is proud to offer these stunningly lifelike images as fine art prints on your choice of seven fine art papers or stretched artists canvas. And for those who prefer a contemporary look his dinosaur prints are now available printed directly on acrylic!...

The Cosmic Ceiling Murals Of Frank Wilson

The Cosmic Ceiling Murals Of Frank Wilson

By Alexandria Page
Paradise, California

Frank Wilson asked me to look up at the ceiling. I did and saw nothing extraordinary, just a plain white ceiling. He shut off the lights and I could not believe the stars that I saw! No Folks,... I'm not talking about those phony looking, greenish yellow, plastic stars that fall off your ceiling or fade out in less than a half hour. What I saw was a planetarium quality replica of the night sky, complete with the major constellations in their proper astronomical positions relative to one another and even the majestic, shimmering Milky Way! In one corner there was even a cluster of three shooting stars! The depth perception was unbelievable, my eyes were tricking me into thinking that the ceiling was gone and I was gazing light years into space. When I asked; “How long will it will glow?“ Wilson said; “The rare-earth phosphors that I use glow with icy blue white colors and glow all night long, night after night, just like the...
