44 Paintings from “Themes & Etudes”

In April 2017, I presented 44 paintings in a solo show at the Yellow Barn at Glen Echo.  Friends who were unable to attend the show have asked for a chance to see the paintings.  I’ve now uploaded them, grouped by category:

You can scroll through all of the categories below, or choose sub-pages by category from the drop-down menu underneath this page’s title from the home page.

If the painting you wanted was sold, or if it didn’t fit into your budget, please contact me at barrygalef@gmail.com (or use the comment form below) about very high-quality reproductions.
They can be made on either paper or canvas, in many sizes.
