"High Flyer"
Click Here to BidEarlier this Autumn I was in the mountains of New England looking for interesting subjects to paint when a large, colorful hot air balloon came up over the hills and almost landed in the field I was standing in. This was one of the more dramatic images from the experience.

"With a Grin"
I'm back at my Blog after a long hiatus. The first painting that I've decided to return with is a small still life that's available for auction by clicking Here. The morning sunlight drapes behind this M & M Cookie Jar in my kitchen creating an almost surreal cartoonish dimension. It's oil on canvas panel. If you're visiting my Blog please feel free to leave a comment.

About Me.
It's September 6th, 2007 and I've only just begun building this Blog. It will probably take me a while before I'm able to understand it better and start including more information...bear with me, I'm sure this will go through a number of revisions.I've worked as a painter and illustrator, having illustrated mostly books and magazines starting in the 1980's. In the early 1990's I also began painting birds and wildlife. During that time I won a number of awards in the genre of wildlife art including 3rd place in a national 'Remarque' contest organized by Wildlife Art Magazine.Since the early 2000's I've been painting other subjects as well as the occasional bird. I'm greatly impressed with how the web is changing opportunities for artists and I also like the idea of creating a-painting-a-day. Although I may not be able to complete a painting every day I do sell and auction my work through Ebay. My Ebay Store address is: please feel free to visit my website - www.richardsalvucci.comThank you. - Richard
