Richard W. Young
Landscape painter

I paint real places in a detailed, realistic style, in oils on canvas - portraits of places that have left their imprints on me. They are places I have lived, places that have arrested my attention in repeated passings, sometimes locations with an emotional attachment. They are the places where I grew up, where I visit, where I live: an empty brown winter field across the road, a snapshot from a summer trip to the beach, storm clouds rolling in across the mountains. Reminders of where I have passed by.
