"With my oil paintings I endeavor to achieve a painterly realism by combining thin and thick layers, combining soft and hard edges and by replicating colors that I see in the subject before me. I paint a variety of subject matter, because what is more important than the subject itself, is whether or not something awakens within me in response to it - something which I then strive to convey in a painting."  - Don Stewart

Welcome to Don Stewart's Daily Paintworks Gallery where you can shop for his original, small paintings in oil.

Don has created an astounding amount of art in his life. 
For over 20 years it's been for the illustration field and nearly 100 of his paintings have been published as book covers for clients like HarperCollins, Macmillan, Moody Press, Pocket Books and Scholastic. Countless paintings have also been in magazines, advertising, children's books and textbooks. In addition, Don is a pioneer of digital painting methods and those, along with his digital paintings, have been featured in the last five consecutive editions of The Painter Wow! Book.

Since 2006 Don has devoted himself to creating works of Fine art and that's what you'll find in this gallery. Everything here is painted from life, not photographs. He works in oils and is equally accomplished at painting people, landscapes and still lifes. Much of his Fine art has been exhibited and is held in private collections.

Currently Don divides his time between Fine art, illustration and teaching. In addition, he hosts the ArtistChronicle channel on YouTube and writes the ArtistChronicle eNewsletter. He received his BFA degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and currently lives in that city, which is centrally located in North Carolina's picturesque heartland.
