Richard. I recently purchased your original oil painting, ' Huon Valley from Vince's Saddle.' I simply want to say it's beautiful and now hangs as my main piece of artwork in my living room. Thank you for creating it.

"Fantastic painting Richard. It captures that magic time on the beach and I am now the proud owner of your original work."

"My husband and I bought your painting last year. We had 
previously seen your painting with the boys playing 
cricket on the beach, and fell in love with it. 
We had 2 grandsons (3 now) and could
imagine them playing cricket on the beach (we will be content with a print) We would've loved the original of that too but couldn't afford it at the time. It was purely chance we were in the gallery at the time!
The painting is absolutely amazing how it changes in different lights. 
We have it on a west facing wall and it is magical!
Our 2 year old grandson stands at the back of the 
Sofa and is mesmerised by it. He thinks it is 'poppy' on the beach. Thank you so
 much for this pleasure. 
Ps I love that new work on your website I want that 
too! "

   Congratulations Richard on a job well done...You have certainly created a beautiful piece of Art for me and on a text (Psalm 46:10) that has a lot of meaning for me...and...the art work is on You Tube! It doesn't get much better than this! Thanks heaps !"
Cheers.....Glenys

Hi Richard
The painting is in transit...each day just becomes more exciting!
I will definitely let you know when the painting has arrived. I will try taking photos with clarity and forward them to you!
The " inspiration" must be working both ways...you are inspiring me...through your paintings...
Give this some thought...
Each day I will be walking into the kitchen/living area...each time I will be graced with solitude and tranquility through your paintings...regardless of the days events...or the days outcomes...
" Be still and know that I am God" surrounds me...through art...through your interpretation...it is perfect....I couldn't wish for more!
I know I am becoming philosophical ...yet again...but for me...what draws me to your paintings is that you paint from your core being...from your values...from your heart...now "that" is inspirational!
So here endeth another lesson!!
Keep painting Richard....you have a wonderful gift that needs to be shared with many....
Take care.....cheers....Glenys
