OIL PAINTINGS & STUDIES GALLERY

This page shows both oil paintings as well as studies. You may ask yourself what is the difference between an actual painting and a study? Speaking for myself, an actual painting starts out as a scene in my mind that I set out to paint that ends up as a finished painting. A study is done when I have concepts and ideas in my mind that need to be worked out on the canvas, when I am uncertain if the ideas in my mind can be successfully executed or not. I include studies here, due in large part because they often work out well enough to be called a painting.
