Richard Stephens

Home Place, Richard Stephens

My mother and I stumbled on a Richard Stephens exhibit yesterday at The Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas.  Stephens’ color palette is really unusual, the colors never muddy, and he has the ability to make structures, such as old shrimp boats and industrial buildings, look lively.  His talented use of plain white portions of the canvas is impressive.  We especially like the chunky brush strokes and colors in Home Place, above, even though this picture doesn’t do it justice.  www.raswatercolors.com
