On The Beach

Rick has always loved color. He was hooked after experiencing the Impressionists at the Art Institute in his native Chicago. Also strongly influenced by contemporary colorists such as Wolf Kahn, his work reflects a commitment to color seeing and the effects of light. His teacher of many years is well known Colorado Impressionist painter Chuck Ceraso. Rick studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, had the privilege of being selected to paint in the Impressionist galleries of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has painted in Italy and throughout the southwestern United States. Having recently moved to Westport, Connecticut, he is inspired by the beautiful and historic countryside and the dramatic coastline of Long Island Sound.
