About Rick

Hey there, thanks for showing interest in my art! Since you’re reading this, let me tell you a bit about me and how I got started…

In May of 2005, my grandmother, Kitty, whom I had known and loved my entire life, passed away at the age of 93. Being that hers was the first really close experience I ever had with death, I took her passing pretty hard. Over the following month, I felt that there must be something that I could do to both memorialize her and to overcome the crushing grief.  Call it a whim or maybe a nudge from God, but the notion of painting her portrait landed squarely upon my mind.

Portrait painting of Kitty Hamersly grandmother of Rick Osborn

That very day, I drove to a Michael's Art’s & Crafts Store and purchased my first set of oils and some painting supplies, including a couple of instructional books, as I’d never even picked up a paint brush! The portrait (to the left) of my grandmother, Kitty, was my first painting. Each m brushstroke helped heal  my grieving soul.  Eventually, and to my surprise, I saw my grandmother appear before my eyes. As you may note, I dressed  her in red (her favorite color), adorning her with a gold necklace and earrings. When the painting was complete, it was as though I had a glimpse as to where my grandmother now existed; this is how I envisioned her in Heaven.  Through the process of painting a portrait of my grandmother,  I was able to release my grief and find peace after her passing.

So, that’s how I started painting, and since then, I haven’t been able to stop. Art has become such a huge part of me that without it, I’d be lost.  While my style has evolved over the years, I’m still both humbled and empowered each time I stand in front of blank canvas and have discovered many metaphors about life.  My goal is to speak to your heart with the use of bold, bright, and dramatic colors that vibrate on the canvas and compliment each other.

Cheers,
