About Dick Wimberly
Dick is a plein air artist whose paintings communicate the moods and seasons of nature. “I feel strongly that I have been given the gift of translating what I see and feel into paint on canvas “ Wimberly explains. “I’m responsible and obligated to share that gift.”
Dick's work is characterized by a sense of authenticity; he prefers to paint on location to better capture the feel of his subject. High winds, blowing dirt, bitter cold or even insects in the paint do not deter him, but help to capture the feel of the subject. “In the process of capturing a painting there is a state of spiritual flow I enter into that makes everything come together and worth while.” Wimberly says. “Art is about giving and receiving. It’s about sharing the beauty that I see in my heart and mind with others.”Dick Wimberly's great grandparents came to the Llano Estacado in eastern New Mexico in a covered wagon. Raised here and in West Texas, Dick found grace and beauty in this desert that was home for him.
Dick has always been interested in art, and cannot remember a time when he wasn't drawing, painting or sculpting. As a result of this and his consequent inattention to school work, he began his formal art training at the age of nine, when his grandmother arranged for him to study with professional artist Maxine Weaver each summer in Claude, Texas.
He has been painting outdoors for over 40 years, and has taught art to everyone from children in Albuquerque Public Schools to adults at Eastern New Mexico University. Dick has been a professional artist since earning his degree in art from Eastern New Mexico University. He has studied with Wilson Hurley, Clyde Aspevig and Michael Lynch. Dick has taught workshops around the US.
As well as winning awards in various competitions, he is the only artist who has won three times the Jeff Potter award for best landscape by a New Mexico artist at the PAPNM National Juried Members Show. Dick has sold through various galleries in New York, Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico and has had many one man shows over the years. Dick Wimberly served as the 2019 President of the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico and is a member of the Oil Painters of America and of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association. Dick lives with his wife in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, where there is a large art community and an abundance of landscapes and worthy subjects within a day's drive. He enjoys traveling and follows his heart painting on location in national parks, across the US, and in Great Britain.
