Rick Unger, Pagosa Springs, Colorado Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I loved creating art from a very early age and later attended three years of vocational art training at the York Vocational School in Pennsylvania. Some of my work is still on display in museums in Pennsylvania.
When I graduated I married and moved to Texas. Texas, with its cattle and horse ranches, was a new experience for me. I felt that the life of a cowboy was a contrast to urban stress and painting cowboy life an escape from the fast pace.
In recent years, my work has been seen and sold through galleries and I have received numerous commissions for my art. Currently, I am mainly working with oil on canvas, although I have some works in acrylic, watercolor and pastels.
Bringing out the beauty of everyday life in my paintings and other works is always very satisfying.
Today, I live in Colorado with my wife, Jody. We have been married for over 29 years and now enjoy our life together in southwest Colorado, where the beautiful San Juan Mountains are a true inspiration.
