All About Richard Burns,  Artist!

Richard Burns Art, richardburnsart.com

Richard Burns Art is on lots of merchandise as well as on prints and of course you can get his original paintings too.

Like many successful artists, Richard Burns was bitten by the art “bug” at a very early age. After years of spending countless hours drawing and sculpting in clay, he decided to make art his life’s work while a junior in college. After attending Northern Arizona University,  he transferred to Cal. State University Northridge where he majored in art and earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1978.

Painting mainly with acrylics, Rich works to bring his love and appreciation for nature to life through his art. A member of the Nature Conservancy, he has done paintings to benefit various funds and charities founded to raise money to protect the environment and endangered species. He is known the world over for his wildlife art, but along the way, Rich became fascinated by cottages and lighthouses and started adding a great many of these to his collection. He is a prolific artist!

Image: This painting is called Harbor Lights and is one of the collection of lighthouses he has done. It is one of my favorites, because of the sky and the little house. I would love to live in this painting. Luckily I have the original in my dining room to admire every day!

Some of Rich’s original works are available for purchase. Contact us below for more information. Enjoy!

Cottage Lighthouse by the Sea
Richard Burns Art

This is another of Rich’s lighthouses…It is called Cottage Lighthouse. He was traveling on the East Coast and started noticing them at a lot of the rocky outcrops on the beaches there and liked the way they looked jutting up from the water.

Tigers
Icy Courtship

Tigers doing a mating dance. An earlier painting Richard did during the time when he was doing wildlife exclusively. He was very fortunate to be invited to the L.A. zoo to paint these magnificent creatures. Many times he was allowed in the cages, as he has a natural affinity with animals and they leave him in peace to draw and paint.

Noyes Rose Petal Gift Shoppe
Richard Burns Art

Richard likes to name some of his paintings with family names and Noyes was his beloved mother’s maiden name. He did this one for her, but we have it because she is no longer with us. I love everything about this painting and it took him a while to get all the flowers, sky and greenery just the way he wanted.

Richard has studied his family genealogy and traced his family back to the early 1600’s. Another family name. I love the willow tree in this one.

Sunset Symphony

Victorian House
Stoddard’s Lane by Richard Bturns
