Snow-capped Hayroll © Bob Richey
Bio: Born in Philadelphia in 1949, Bob Richey graduated from Penn State University in 1971, with a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering. During a 25 year engineering career designing and analyzing aircraft structures with the United States Navy, Bob kept his childhood passion for art. He is mainly self taught although he did study with several local professional artists during his early period with the goal of perfecting his own artwork to a professional level. He turned full time professional artist in 1996, when he took early retirement. Bob's passion for creating art led him first to watercolor before he finally settled on soft pastels as his primary medium. He usually concentrates on relatively small format landscapes, completed in a single sitting. Working on a modest scale allows him to explore many compositions and capture the essence of the moment on paper. It is also a successful business model – Bob has averaged sales of 200 paintings per annum over the last twenty years.
