Piece description from the artist
Purgatory Creek runs through Eden Prairie and several other western suburbs of the Twin Cities. It got its name from the early Anglo/Swedish settlers who first arrived here and named the creek for all the mosquitoes that constantly harassed them. So much so, they thought they were in purgatory! I've added some elements to try to make the creekscape more interesting.
Richard Green holds a Bachelor's degree in music and art history from the University of Minnesota, and a commercial art certificate from The Hennepin County Technical College. The 35mm camera he received for his seventh birthday was probably the catalyst which would eventually lead to a career in art direction and graphic design. He is a self-taught watercolor artist and oftentimes combines a variety of mediums, including a computer to achieve the effects he desires.
