Richard Schmid is one of the foremost painters living today. He paints from life and his work is something to behold. He is one of my favorite artists... his book "Alla Prima" is the single most important volume in my library of art books... its tattered pages attest to my ongoing use of it.
His purchase date for "White Pine" ... #4 in a series of landscape paintings is set for November 13th!
