SIMPLY CALIFORNIA SEASCAPES AND LANDSCAPES: Knowledgeable art collectors say that the California landscape and seascape paintings by Robert A. Richert are among the finest available today!  In the 1970's, after experiencing the ugliness of war in Vietnam, Robert became strongly motivated to bring beauty into the world through his art.  Robert has been a professional artist since the early 1980's.  Inspired by nature's boundless beauty, his use of rich color, strong composition, and dramatic lighting capture nature's grandeur while his finely honed brush strokes capture its subtle nuances.  The translucent light emanating through the waves and the realism of Robert’s seascapes recall the sound and smell of the ocean.  People feel they can walk into Richert's  paintings to escape into an environment that provides them the opportunity to experience beauty, inspiration, and joy.
