My name is Richard Derwitsch, but you can call me Rick.

I have been painting for most of my life and have shown in galleries around Connecticut and neighboring states for over 30 years. It is a pleasure to share my work with you here on ArtFire.

I love going out into nature and capturing the beauty and peace that I experience there in my paintings. Working from life, in the plein air tradition, is my preferred technique. I sometimes work in the studio and even there I prefer to work from life and that is where my still life work is mostly born.

I also play guitar and have been trained in the classical methods. I love to write music too and plan to share that with you at some time in the future too.

Greetings and welcome to my studio. My name is Rick and I've been painting since I was a teenager ... that's over 40 years now (which is a little hard to believe).

I love spending time in nature and capturing the beauty and peace that I experience there in color and form, light and shadow. I work in the studio too, creating the occasional still life or fanciful drawing, especially when the weather is less than agreeable.

My hope is that the simple joy that I experience in creating these works is conveyed through them to you.
Thanks for visiting and have a creative day!

~ Rick
