Oil Gallery

I hope you enjoy viewing my online oil painting gallery below. I use water mixable oils on canvas and board. Most of my paintings are unvarnished and are unframed unless otherwise mentioned. These paintings are available for purchase unless marked as sold. Please email me using the contacts page in the menu above if you would like to know more. These photos are a low resolution but I can send a high res image if you are interested in purchasing. Signed giclee prints (archival quality print with certificate) are available of most of my paintings.
