Presenting Opportunities for Moments of Grace.

"For me art is to be for others, presenting opportunities for moments of grace that open the soul and move the heart toward a more imtimate relationship with God."

Richard has been blessed with crafting religious fine art for 25 years. His journey in religious art began in 1988 when he was asked to create an illustration for the "plan of life" booklet of a contemplative religious community in Italy.

George Studios currently offers commissioned originals and framed prints.

We will be uploading newer works from time to time.

So please check back with us . . .

Our Lady of Vang

Painting Over the Shoulder

In 1998 I had one of the most diffult commission: I had to become a live paintbrush under the watchful eye of the one who commissioned it. Every stroke had to reveal the way he saw it. It was very challenging both to suppress how I thought it should look and to just allow myself to become the paint brush of someone else.

However, in the end there was at least some merit . . .

Throwing Colors on the Canvas

Painting with Haste

With a couple of days left before Bishop Thomas Olmstead's installation as the Bishop of the Dioceses of Wichita, I was approached by Fr. Tom Hoisington with the request to paint a special image for the installation Mass that was impregnated with symbolic signifiance of the calling and position of the his office. It would not be the first nor the last time in which I was given a couple of days lead time to complete a painting.

I learned later that a number of people were touched by the image.

So sometimes it's worth painting in haste . . .

A Surprise Snap Shot

A Fleeting Moment in the Making of Art

15 years ago I had a surprise visit from my great aunt Louise three days into the painting of this image of the Most Blessed Trinity on which occasion she took this picture.

In the end, it was providential that she took this picture, for I was so busy with obligations and commitments at the time it needed to ship that I failed to get a picture of the final painting.

Still a blessing to remember a moment in the works . . .
