Artist Statement
for Richard Ficker
Richard FickerWith the exception of a painting class I took in high school I am a self taught artist. I have always looked at the world as an artist, light, shadow, color,and form, but was always to busy to paint. In 2002 at the age of 49 I started, and have been playing catch up ever since. I've started doing shows and selling my work, and hope to some day be able to support myself on my art, so I can paint full time.
I didn't have a good picture of myself,so this is one I painted If your interested in purchasing my work, or a gallery thats interested in displaying it, email rickland4@bellsouth.net

Many years ago I use to put my kids down for naps and then turn on t.v. to watch Bob Ross give instructions on how to paint landscapes.. He was my first...
Joyce, I love this, your first. Oh so brilliant the colors. So wonderful that you did start as now we have the beauty of your works on this site to look at. ... view answer
