“Seed King”

This window was finished spring of 2017. We had been having problems with squirrels in our attic, so I did a few paintings with squirrels in them. This is the second one in the series. It has a squirrel looking out a window at a field of sunflowers, because every squirrel wishes they had their own field of sunflowers. We have two “bird” feeders which I keep filled with sunflower seeds. The squirrels let the birds have some, sometimes.

About Richard

Richard developed an interest in nature at an early age by going camping and fishing with his family. His mother was an avid bird watcher, and his father took him fishing often. Fishing helped him develop patience and an eye for doing landscapes. Richard attended The Ringling School of Art and Design, where he fine tuned his eye for landscapes and developed the ability to put what he saw on canvas. He did well in his landscape and drawing classes. Richard is also known for his Tronpe-loeil paintings which he started in 1977. Trompe-loeil roughly translates "To Fool the Eye". His paintings are so realistic that people go up and touch them. Most people are surprised when they find them to be only paint on canvas. People find Richard's landscapes to be relaxing and his Trompe-loiel pieces thought provoking and fun.
