People often mistake many of Rich's abstract images for paintings. "I get a tremendous kick out of taking an image, creating an abstraction that looks nothing like the original, and seeing what I can come up with." Many of Rich's subjects are of Florida Wildlife but the real fun he says is in creating new images. "Abstract really floats my boat. A sunrise and sunset is already there, I'm just capturing it, not manipulating it."
It is my personal belief that creativity is inherent in everyone. Our imagination is the catalyst that we use to define who and what we are as we reveal, explore and expand our uniqueness.

The Clematis Street News Stand. The variety of items is interesting.
