Richard is a Central Texas native whose paintings can be found in his own Downtown Austin gallery, RichesArt Gallery, and in collections around the world.


"His college football skills allowed him to play for teams in Europe, enabling him to travel to many countries. He's been to Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Serbia, Czech Republic, Bosnia, Austria, Greece, and Germany. In these countries he experienced the landscape, history, art and culture first hand. Focusing on the sensual nature of art, he loves to create colorful, eclectic, and realistic watercolor paintings." -

Exhibit Dates: July 1 - August 13

Opening Reception: July 1, 6:00-8:00pm

Please join in celebrating our 2022 Buda Art Brawl - 2nd Place Brawler, Michelle Wilson, who is a local watercolor artist based out of San Marcos, Texas.


"There’s a strange beauty that exists within strife. Michelle draws upon the tumultuous mix of pain and pride that colors the events of her life...Michelle’s art is less about healing but more about living with scars, learning to accept the beauty in her damaged self, and embracing the brokenness in emotional trauma and mental illness. Moving past the need to repair damage, she recognizes the fact that she will never be the same.  One can say it’s more of a coming to terms with the beauty in the inevitable changing of self.  You will see  Michelle’s passion for philosophy and how it has deepened her understanding of  the joy and pain of love and loss, and the beautiful scars those leave behind."



Michelle's artwork will be on exhibit in the Chambers Theatre Foyer at Inspired Minds Art Center from July 1 - August 13.
