Richard was reviewed by Warwick Beacon in July 2001 while his artwork was on display at the Warick Library. The following is taken from that review; "The paintings exhibit strength of design and a love of fresh multi-color blends, capturing the essence of New England Landscape and Archetectural subjects." (the paintings) "offer a mix of impressionistic color and expressionistic brush handling." Richard graduated from Rhode Island College with a BS in Art Education and has been teaching watercolor at the Rhode Island School of Design for more than 13 years. He also offers private instruction at his studio. During the summer months he participtes in outdoor shows in Masssachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
