My name is Richard Schlicher and I am a Simsbury, CT based artist. I began around fifteen years ago (after thirty five years in the finance industry) with oil pastels. I am currently painting almost exclusively with oils. I'm inspired by nature, other artists, and other things.
All of the paintings on my site are original and included are abstracts, landscapes, and human and animal portraits. The sizes range from 5"x 7" to 48"x 72". The vast majority are for sale and if you are interested in one please contact me. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, several large abstracts are available for purchase at Mark Deutsch Fine Art (www.markdeutschfineart.com). I periodically post paintings on Instagram @rschlicher.
I have had several solo and joint exhibits.
I was awarded "Best In Show" in the West Hartford Art League's 2021 juried CT +6 (New England and NY) Exhibit. I am a past recipient of The Barbara Morley Award for oil painting.
