Click on a gallery above to tour the exceptional oil paintings of William H. Hays.
"Oil painting landscapes of Vermont, New England and Nova Scotia have been the mainstay of my work for more than 20 years. I am a studio painter and feel that painting on location with oils is neither pleasant nor convenient. If I am going to paint on location, I do so with watercolors to quickly capture a composition and mood. In the studio I'm free of the need to depict a scene as it actually is. I focus my attention to the composition in the canvas and try to use that composition to carry the feeling and mood of the scene which inspired the painting - whether a real place or a purely personal creation.
"Today I am beginning to feel that I really understand what oils can do. I felt the same thing five years ago and hope to feel the same 20 years from now. How wonderful to work with a medium that continually reveals itself!" William H. Hays
