richard-krogastad-portraitWELCOME

Thank you for visiting my website. People often tell me that looking at my paintings gives them a feeling of peace and calm. Basically, that’s what I want to convey in my work. Nature and the rural landscape are a refuge from the rush and stress that are, unfortunately, so much a part of everyday life. My paintings are windows into places that calm the mind and soothe the soul. It is my pleasure and good fortune to share these special places with you.

These paintings, especially fun to do, are called my “little gems”.

More challenging, these are painted wet-into-wet over consecutive days.

With a special sense of presence because of their impressive size and scale, these paintings are best seen “in person”.
