A treasure chest of images.

Family Portrait Tryptich

Paintings by Rick Mobbs (images copyrighted by the artist)

I stumbled upon this painter while looking at some writing – you know how it goes. Someone comments on your work, you look at what they are writing. You notice a comment on their work that is interesting. They post a picture that has inspired their writing. You seek that out and all of a sudden you have opened up a marvelous treasure chest of images that sing, that need infinite looking. Pearls of images. Diamonds. Intricate turquoises. Lapis and garnets. It’s all there tumbling out in a rich jumble. Have a look!


Congratulations Rick.

and post script.

I contacted Rick Mobbs and he kindly allewed me to lift some images from his web site which I have now posted above. I had a difficult time choosing. He’s so talented that anything he draws is beautifully done. I thoroughly admired his drawings of boots, boxers and calves. He makes a mundane object sing with life just in the lively way in which he draws/paints it.  But it was his illustrative, fantasy, childlike images that I became absorbed in. He has such an imagination. But there is nothing childish about his work. His visual vocabulary is rich in colour, texture and rhythms. His compositions artfully draw you around the image as if you were effortlessly flying in a dream world.

And by the way, he writes as well. His web site will lead you to that, if you are interested in going in exploring his written word.
