Gallery Owner’s words:
“…. a few years before Richard’s passing, he would take the complimentary senior citizen cab to the gallery. He simply wanted to sit for hours and tell someone his stories which ranged for almost 100 years. I was usually the benefactor of his stories, and what a treasure for me. He shared stories of his Ad-man days in NY in the 50’s to the days of Normandy when he was 24 years old. These were not bleak stories about hardship, rather filled with life and adventure. His perspective was genuine and unique, and I will always hold those moments dear to me. He had this twinkle in his eye when he spoke and although his body had clearly failed him, his mind was sharper than most! He was a story teller, in both his artwork and his novels. I always felt his experiences/stories had a patina to them. Richard could paint anything and I commissioned him to paint lions heads for me. They are hanging in my home office today…..and always will be.”
