Matthew Bates Original Oil Paintings
I am a fine artist and I live in Florence, Italy. My subjects are realistic in nature with an emphasis on color and composition. The paintings have a crisp edge which makes for excellent reproductions. Since the paintings have very fine surfaces, they photograph well and are true to the original in almost every respect. I have many of my own prints hanging in my studio, especially of the paintings that have sold, and are a great reminder of the original paintings.
