Ric R. Benda – Floral

Painting calls for color, emotion, texture, power and last but not least, your own personal love and dedication in every brush stroke. Intentional, or accidental it can be felt and revealed through the eyes of the beholder.


“Art is Personal”, but it can also be a very moving spiritual expression from within, where the artist can feel almost possessed at times! Working in mixed media mostly in acrylic and collage and various forms of collage, such as “fummage” (the art of burning paper), crayon and watercolor etc… Working with strong combinations of abstract and traditional influences, keeping the traditional more suggestive than realistic, adds to the mystery and storytelling I hope to create in the viewers eyes!

“No matter what paintings, that comes from me, are in fact, ME!”
