Dick Ferrer
Fine Art Paintings

This is what Dick has been up to

Dick just thought he retired 2 and a half years ago. He has been busy finishing our home studio, painting as much as possible and helping Dixie and Barb run the gallery. He is head of the basic maintenance and shipping departments as well as working the front desk several days a week.

Dick is hoping to participate at more plein air events the remainder of 2014 and add to that the following year now that the home studio is completed.

He also plans to expand on his newly developed palette incorporating variations of purple hues more than ever (I know most painters discover purple early in their career, however Dick being self taught and stealing from his established painter friends may grasp concepts on a different time scale).
