About the artist.

Bill Baily lives with his wife, Donna, in Lake Oswego, Oregon.  They have a weekend place on the Oregon coast. Although he was a professional pharmacist, he has also been an artist for over forty-six years. Bill is now retired and he spends his time painting. His subject matter is impressionistic landscapes and seascapes as well as the more prevalent fruit and vegetable still lifes for which he is well known.

Bill studied with Nelson Sandgren, Charles Mulvey, Perry Acker, Phil Tyler and George Hamilton. He has had work included in the annual Northwest Watercolor Society Show in Seattle, Artists of Oregon Exhibit at the Portland Art Museum, and numerous Watercolor Society of Oregon Biannual exhibits. He has contributed his paintings to the Cascade Aids Auctions where his work was usually selected to be in their published catalogues.


Some of the permanent collections where his work can be found are those of Sunriver Lodge and Condominiums, Georgia-Pacific, Wells Fargo Bank, Lloyd Corporation, the Arlington Club, Good Samaritan Hospital, Nabisco, the Multnomah Athletic Club, Bank of America, Freightliner, Sisters of Providence Hospital, and Boise Cascade. Many private collectors in the United States, Japan and Western Europe also collect his paintings.
