Artist Rick Kuhn
Rick Kuhn is a native of Connecticut. At an early age, he had a strong attraction to color and and an interest in the appearance of his physical surroundings. He began with pencil drawings of buildings, highways, bridges and street scenes as well as the natural landscape.
In later years, he relocated to Idaho and began to paint, first in oils and then in acrylics. Rick worked as a professional musician for many years and traveled extensively thoughout the United State, gathering the subject matter for his art. His work naturally evolved, portraying the more open, sunlit western landscape.
Rick is currently working on a series of paintings depicting scenes of Newtown, Connecticut, where he grew up.
Rick is a talented artist, musician, visionary man. His paintings are realistic and experiencing his art allows you to stand on Main Street, touch the rims of a river canyon, feel the color and texture of blooming fruit trees, watch the water and life on the canals of Venice, or walk the streets of his early years.

" I love the way Rick Kuhn has captured the genuine look of the well known, Newtown Congregational Church which is near and dear to my heart." "This painting of the General Store is an authentic depiction of how it looked in the 1960's. It holds such a fond memory of my beloved Newtown."
Whenever I look at Rick Kuhn's paintings, I say to myself, what a wonderful world.
