Melted Crayons by Richard Ficker

Melted Crayons

When the ocean looks like melted crayons at the end of day.
The wind is low the lines are long, and mermaids come to play.

Thank you Sue, as for ideas I'll start drawing or painting with something in mind and by the time I'm done it will evolve into something else entirely but I like to be fluid.

the colors in sky and water are awesome, the mermaid looks a little startled to me, did she expect a person to swim and play instead of the Dolphin?

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
Do you sketch people from life when your out and about in cafes or bars ect. Have you ever been caught out doing it ?
Awesome, look at the expressive face, the chin held by his hand, the hat perched perfectly placed on his head...the bim bent forward over his brow. Love the... view answer
