Richard’s paintings reveal that winning combination of humility before the natural beauty of the landscape and a unique and inspired response. Having studied art for his whole adult life, his work is nonetheless rooted in a sensitivity and feeling for composition and color that can only be cultivated, not taught. He is continuously pushing himself to study and learn more about painting and grow as an artist.
Richard is Co-Chair (with Paul Kratter) of the California Art Club — SF Bay Area Chapter. He has enjoyed artist residencies at Banff Art Center and Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. He’s exhibited with the California Art Club, and numerous annual shows presented by Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT), Napa Valley Art Festival, Laguna Plein Air Invitational, Sonoma Plein Air, Marinscapes, and others. He teaches classes and workshops in Marin County. Information on his classes can be found on his website.
