This piece was made for a biker themed bar in Deadwood South Dakota. Deadwood is a historical town that sits just minutes away from Sturgis, the annual site of the biggest biker rally in the US. The owners wanted a piece that fit the town and the bar's biker friendly image. NAILED IT

Review of Elsa
by Larisa Aug 02nd 2013
I had a very positive experience working with Rick. His talent is obvious and he is very professional. I gave a slightly lower grade for communication as I showed him a website depicting the type of dog portraiture I was looking for but the first reveal of my project was definitely more in his own personal style in contrast to what I had requested, the difference being a very busy, colourful background compared to the subtle neutral background I had asked for. This affected the timeliness of the project as Rick cheerfully reworked the painting for me, as per my request. I found working with Rick to be lots of fun and very easy. He is talented and the resulting portrait of my dog is as unique as she is. It is amazing how well he captured her! I highly recommend people working with Rick.
Review of Holliday anniversary tile
by Tommie May 22nd 2013
This project was done on short notice and a completely custom idea, rick worked with me and got the tiles finished leaving me enough time to complete my project for my wife's anniversary gift. Turned out to be a very good choice of artists! The only reason I gave a lower score on communication is I was receiving emails from custom made telling me to make my final payment and didn't even realize that the tiles had already shipped. In the grand scheme of things I guess he was just to fast for custom made???

Review of Portrait Sketch/Painting of John Lennon and 2 others
by Karen B. May 01st 2013
My partner and I are travelling to Prague in the summer and there is a wall there called the John Lennon Wall. It is a tribute wall to Lennon and his music that began as a rebellion against the communist reign after Lennon's death in the 80s. My partner's late brother and father were both big Lennon fans (fans would be an understatement) and she wanted to leave a tribute to them on the wall. I thought that we should stay true to the wall's theme and add a piece of artwork that was in the same style of the wall and that incorporated Lennon and his music. That was basically the description that I sent out to Rick, and below, you can see what he came up with. The likeness of each person is perfect... and I really could not have asked for anything better! In fact, we love it so much that we are now hesitant to leave the original on the wall and might want to keep it for ourselves!!
Rick was very enthusiastic about the project, he said that he could do the project well and he did. He... Read more
