Richard W See

San Anselmo, CA

I have enjoyed a lifelong romance and passion for all aspects of painting and art in general. I began my career painting commissions of pet portraits, being a lover of all animals, but eventually moved into plein air painting, and now combine that with studio painting as well. I like to bring a whimsical and humorous quality to my work and see it as illustrative and narrative. Artists are natural historians who create a sense of time and place, and this is also a quality I want to emulate. My ultimate goal is to paint like a seven year old.
