About Us Ricau Arts

Capturing the impression and emotion in my paintings is my ultimate goal. I enjoy observing my surroundings and finding what attracts me. The contrast of light with dark and color are what catch my eye. The mystery of what I don't see but imagine also captivates me.

The hardest part is the beginning, because there are no guarantees; there is only uncertainty and risk.

Once I start I allow myself to experience the emotion that I wish to evoke.

Recent work and activities include acrylics on panel and canvas of mountain scenes from Lassen National Park, Plumas County, wildlife and domestic pets on commission.
