By Rick Delanty

Rick J.Delanty is a national award-winning California coastal and landscape artist and a Signature Artist at Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA). He has been painting landscapes and seascape for over four decades, bringing his wonder and awe of God’s Creation to canvas.

Rick employs both oils and acrylics in the creation of his work, intending to reveal the splendor of quiet corners of the earth. He offers viewers an opportunity to experience the wonder and peace of nature. His impressionistic style brings not only the scenes of California to life but inspires the viewer with his concentration on creating mood and movement in every artwork. He conveys his own experiences in nature with bold, vibrant colors, intermingled with a subtlety and sensitivity that speak of peace, hope, and life. Rick maintains a home studio and art gallery in San Clemente.

His book, Beauty Unites Us, Paintings and Inspiration is a portfolio of 59 of his paintings, from Big Sur to Niagara Falls, focusing on beauty and life, power and movement, light and hope. It includes short, personal essays reflecting on his search for beauty in the world despite hardships, challenges, and a global pandemic. The foreword is written by Jean Stern, noted historian, author, and emeritus director of the Irvine Museum.

2022 finds Rick bursting out the gate with exhibitions and awards. His painting “String of Pearls” will be displayed in the 111th annual Gold Medal Exhibition presented by the California Art Club in the Bowers Museum, Santa Ana, July 16-August 21. Rick just finished a “Artist in Residence” showcase exhibition, Making a Splash, at LPAPA Gallery with watercolor artist Shuang LiHe was selected by the International Art Renewal Center (ARC) as an Associate Living Master.

Rick’s will be our last demonstration before the summer and his presentation will be a great kick-off to our weeklong Paint San Clemente 2022!
