Fine Art by Rick Bayers

Thank you for visiting my website.  I have had a passion and love for art that started when I was six or seven years old. Art has inspired my life in several ways. Landscape painting has given me a unique and deep appreciation for all of nature. Portrait painting has given me a curiosity and appreciation for people in all walks of life. I consider myself a classic studio painter. Although I have painted in "plein air", my heaven on earth is in my studio with music playing, dogs sleeping, a hot cup of coffee and a palette full of fresh oil paint ready to go. I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings, browsing the site and reading my blogs. Feel free to write or contact me regarding any of the paintings on this site.  Several of the paintings are for sale and I also offer 11 x 14 signed color prints. I also am available for commissioned work.
