Richard Price lives and works in Cadosia, NY. His watercolors have won awards in regional and national art shows. Influenced by Winslow Homer, Grant Wood, Edward Hopper, Charles Burchfield, Andrew Wyeth, and many of the historic masters, his work combines realistic images with emotional perceptions and interpretations of subject matter to produce paintings with a strong sense of place. A full range of tonal values, given depth and luminosity by repeated glazes and intricate detail, add impact and solidity to his work.

Artist's Statement

"After painting for thirty years, it looks like I'll always be a realist, though I am enjoying the abstract works that I'm doing in conjunction with other work. There seems to be no limit to the things I want to paint. Most of my work is based on real places or things, but I like to combine images from different locations, crop things to capture only that part that interests me, or add things that help me express some sort of emotional response to the subject. That feeling might be something mysterious or melancholy, hopeful or sad. It’s rarely a whole building or landscape; just some part of it that catches my eye and stirs up something inside me - something about time or hardship or solitude - that makes it worthwhile to try to get it down. The only goal I have in painting is to become the best painter I possibly can. Although there is no end to this pursuit, it is the only meaningful and longlasting motivation for an artist."
