Description The California Tower in historic Balboa Park, San Diego by RD Randy Riccoboni. Original 16 x 21 acrylic on canvas. painted in the impressionst style, viewed from the sculpture garden. Souvenir art of California. Color is the first thing you notice about my work. What makes it pop is the placement of color and texture. The primary colors in my palette are derived from the colors in the original rainbow flag which represent sexuality, healing, sun, nature, art, harmony and spirit. As a painter I am a visual storyteller. A message comes with the art - perhaps it is playful, calming, erotic, disturbing, political, or even sacred. I like to flirt with the issues and experiences we face in everyday life, the things we do and the places we go that define our lives. Whether positive, humorous, or thought provoking, my work portrays events people relate to while creating a sense of place for the viewer.
