    I am very honored to have had Marc Hanson award my painting finalist for the September Master Class category in the on-line Art Muse Contest.
    Marc had these kind words to say about the piece; "I can feel the light as it touches the very tops of the upper edges of the rocks and then sinks into the shadows of the depths of the canyon. Richard’s knowledge of the geography is not understated, but doesn’t over shadow the cohesion of the whole. I really like the use of textural brushwork in the mid-ground and foreground vegetation and rocks to give the painting a lot of depth."
