American impressionist Richard Wallich has spent more than 30 years honing his painting talents. Using dabs and swirls of paint, he creates a dazzling array of brightly colored images-ranging from landscapes to figures to sports. Wallich was attracted to impressionism by desire to paint quickly and spontaneously, to immerse himself in the painting. It's a first impression, fast quick, loose, spontaneous-nondescript perhaps, but clearly a figure. The Colorado artist also is noted for his use of vibrant, emotion evoking colors.
