Bill E. Carnahan

Artist - Certified Bob Ross Instructor

Bill has been painting in oils and teaching painting for 49 years.

He has shown his work in many of the
larger Western Art shows as well as smaller arts and craft shows in Washington and Oregon. Bill’s art is in numerous personal collections through out the US and in several foreign countries.  He enjoys painting wildlife, old barns, landscapes and flowers of the Pacific Northwest and pet portraits for his own professional work.  Bill is one of the founding members of the Northwest Artist Association and is one of the artists featured in a book published in 2005 “Notable Artists of the Pacific Northwest”.  He is also included in the book "Artists of the West" released in May of 2008.

Bill has enjoyed teaching from the beginning but after being certified to teach the "Bob Ross" technique by the Bob Ross Company  22 years ago, he has found it even more rewarding. He Taught landscapes, seascapes and flowers in his classes.
It waes exciting to help someone that has never painted before to be able to complete a painting. You did not have to have any previous experience to participate in the classes and be successful, just the desire to learn and willing to follow instruction. .

Bill  traveled across the State of Washington teaching hundreds of students over the past 22 years, but he is no longer teaching.  He is now only paining Pet Portraits and Portraits of Old Barns.
