Bill Oistad is creating Abstract oil paintings.

      Hello, and Welcome to my Patreon Page! I'm an award winning artist creating Abstract paintings on canvas and panel, using oil paints and cold wax medium.  I've always made it a priority to maintain a studio and continue to paint since earning my MFA degree in Visual Arts back in 1995. In the following years, I have been fortunate to work in the creative community in a variety of roles, as a gallery director, manager of a frame store and as a master photo retoucher. 
        I made the decision to bring my painting career to the forefront of my creative endeavors several years ago, and the journey has been a great success. Over the last five years, I've been invited to exhibit my artwork in numerous nationally ranked Art Festivals, winning exhibition awards eight times! While being a full-time fine artist has been rewarding (literally), it has also been challenging. Imagine if you will, the resources that make up an award winning traveling gallery: the stretcher bars, canvas, paints and fine gold framing; the heavy-duty tent, display panels and lighting; the Jury Fees to enter each show and the Booth Fees to reserve a space if accepted to each art fair...just to name a few, phew!!
     I've created this Patreon page as a gathering spot for the many fine art collectors that have bought paintings from me, my fans on Social (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) and all the people that I've met throughout the years that have an interest in my style of painting and my creative vision. My goal is to give Patrons a more immersive view into the life of an artist. You'll be able to join me 'behind the scenes' on my artistic journey and collect rewards along the way! Thank you so much for your consideration to become a Patron of the Arts.

Patron-only feed of photos of my studio, details of paintings in progress and videos of the many Art Festivals that I show at throughout the year.

Primed Canvas

Thank you!  You've prepared the surface to allow me to feverishly brush and scrape paint onto it. You will have access to all previous level rewards, as well as:


  • Access to "Behind the scenes" videos of paintings in progress including close-up videos of details applied right from the brush. Disclaimer: there may be some comedic aspects to these videos, either intended or unintended. I really have fun while following this path in my life.
Finishing Touches

Thank you!  I've now had my dance between Intuition and Intention, and you want me to apply those final daubs of paint and detail. You will have access to all previous level rewards, as well as:


  • Access to monthly "in-depth" conversational videos surrounding the creation of my artworks and some of the underlying themes that direct my studio activities.  
  • You will receive a yearly branded gift, such as a coffee cup, wine glass or T-Shirt. This reward could take on various forms of swag, so enjoy the mystery and trust that I can create something interesting...
Elegant Gold Frame
$30 or more per month
Thank you! Thank you!  You know the value of a fine frame to elevate a painting to a "work of art" and instantly enhance any environment.  You will have access to all previous level rewards, as well as:


  • The ability to engage and submit questions that shape monthly critical video conversations about my work, painting in general and topics relating to life as an artist.  
  • You will also receive a yearly, signed and numbered, limited edition fine art print (approx. 10" x 12" image size) that I create specifically for this reward level. 
Goals
1 of 600 patrons
When I reach 600 Patrons, I'll be able to invest in a nice Giclee' printer to make fine art prints based on elements found in my paintings. I will also be able to enter more Art Fairs and bring my traveling gallery to a town near you. Thank you for working with me towards this goal!
