Inspired by the Renaissance period and various musical artists, Richard Paul has worked in many genres and mediums; oils, his preferred choice. Also a writer/poet; currently working on projects that combine his talents. Richard Paul has always lived in rural areas and has made the foothills his home for the last 16 years.
Life is full of ups and downs; we must find our own strengths/direction. The right words, music, works of art and other choices, can help us relax, gain a new perspective, find comfort, or just celebrate the life we have, the life we so often take for granted. Over the years I have come to realize that creative mediums, however used, come alive and personify the power and passions of the artists.
He studied at Elliot Lake growing up, spent various holidays and spare time at many art camps/programs. He has been painting for 40 plus years. Most of his works are donated to the private sector and occasionally will take on personal requests.
There are always tragedies, unexpected life events, Richard Paul is no stranger to such events, his art, writing and creativity are one way that helps him continue to heal and move forward.
