American Realist Fine Art Gallery, Oil Paintings and Drawings by Thor Wickstrom

Welcome to my Etsy studio gallery, where you can browse my original paintings and drawings, all done from life and from imagination.

I'm happy to share my buyer reviews. Here's some of what people who have collected my work have said about it-

My landscape paintings reflect city life in New York, and country life in the Berkshires. I enjoy painting a range of subject matter, from simple field and sky compositions to intricate industrial compositions in the city. The real interest for me is always the color and the light, which is different depending on time of day, weather conditions, the season, etc. New York has its own special color palette. Painting outdoors and from life is an endless challenge and joy for me.

Working from the human figure is also a passion. Lately I've been playing with compositions of artists working from the model. I post my favorite work to Etsy.

For materials I use high quality material; fine oil paint, primed linen or canvas, arches watercolor paper, and hand primed panels.

Like all of my work, my drawings are from life. I use vine charcoal or ink, time tested materials, and often presented in standard sized mats which are easily framed.

Many of the paintings are framed in a home-made natural wood strip frames. This gives a simple, modern look which can be easily changed out for professional framing.

Please note that the oil figure sketches are often on small unmounted pieces linen, These can be professionally mounted and framed, or simply displayed in a mat.

International buyers should be aware that there may be additional taxes at customs. I am required to fill out a customs declaration for the value of the work. Also that i pack the work carefully, but customs may want to unpack and repack it. So far there has not been any damage or loss reported.

When making an order, please read my shop policies. As is standard with fine art sales, the artist retains reproduction rights.
