Oil on Masonite 5 x 7 inches Last year I went to the Higgins Armory museum in Worcester, Mass and was greatly impressed by the craftsmanship and detail applied to the suits of armor. This one was the most ornate of the suits I painted.
It's September 6th, 2007 and I've only just begun building this Blog. It will probably take me a while before I'm able to understand it better and start including more information...bear with me, I'm sure this will go through a number of revisions.
I've worked as a painter and illustrator, having illustrated mostly books and magazines starting in the 1980's. In the early 1990's I also began painting birds and wildlife. During that time I won a number of awards in the genre of wildlife art including 3rd place in a national 'Remarque' contest organized by Wildlife Art Magazine.
Since the early 2000's I've been painting other subjects as well as the occasional bird. I'm greatly impressed with how the web is changing opportunities for artists and I also like the idea of creating a-painting-a-day. Although I may not be able to complete a painting every day I do sell and auction my work through Ebay. My Ebay Store address is: http://stores.ebay.com/richard-salvucci -gallery
