Piece description from the artist
This piece pays tribute to one of my favorite painters:
Andrew Wyeth. Like Andy, I decided to "Paint WHERE
I LIVE" ~ Eden Prairie, Minnesota. This watercolor was
painted to celebrate the demise of one of Minnesota's
worst winters on record ~ hence the burial scene. The
location is Staring Lake, about 2 miles from our home.
The characters: all fictitious, but truly grateful.
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.
