Dear Rick, I am happy to join so many others who enjoy your magnificent work. When I first started acquiring “Herters” in 1985, I never imagined that now after thirty years I would own a collection of the finest aviation art anywhere. Everyone without exception comments just how exciting and perfect your work is. Your painting of Boo still puts tears into my eyes it having captured her spirit and soul. You are a fine artist, a fine man and a valued historian of aviation history.
“Ever since I saw the first painting of Rick several years ago on the internet, I immediately took a strong liking to his art. His realism and his excellent choice of strong colors make him a standout artist in the field of aviation art. Having commissioned a number of paintings with Rick, I can only say that it is very easy to communicate with him and the end result is always astounding and most satisfying. Time and again, I am fascinated with the way he transforms his or someone else’s idea into a wonderful work of art. Rick belongs, in my humble opinion, to the world’s top artists in his field who sells his paintings at very reasonable prices”.
We have several of Rick’s works in our collection. We are exceedingly lucky in that a number of them are the original oils. Two of our originals are commissioned pieces. The level of research to ensure the historical accuracy of the paintings was very gratifying. Rick was very easy to work with and spent alot of time with us to ensure that the vision we had in our minds was transferred to canvas. There were many drawings giving perspective that we went through. The final painting exceeded our expectations and those of the recipient, with a perfect historical accuracy. We look forward to seeing more of Rick’s works on our walls.
