Hey, what's Spudnik doing in there?
He brushed his hair for the picture, I think. It's so... stylish. He even left his tree for a hat. Who is the lucky guy?
You said you wanted paintings only, but some of these are not paintings.

Of yours, post #35, 57, 81 (looks charcol), 95-99, 105 doesn't look like paint, and there are more, but I think you get the point.
Now, pictures created by an artist would be a better criteria, but a photographer would argue that they're artists too, and that most other painters capture life just like they do, except the painter is slower. If you required that it be by hand, then some of these might be digitally created and/or modified (I'm thinking of #35, but don't know one way or another.)
See, it's hard to define the requirements!
Paintings/Drawings. Is simple Cavalier.
