Hello, my name is Rich Travis,
To see public showings of my works, as well as other thoughts and inspiration, check out my blog
I'm a retired advertising art director, illustrator and copy writer. Besides the acrylic paintings shown here and numerous commercial illustrations (not shown), I've also written two 'unpublished' novels. In fact, I proudly served three years as President of Peninsula Writers, the largest writer support organization in Michigan. My friends know me as a writer who paints with words and as a painter who tells stories with a brush. The fact is, I am passionate about creative endeavors, no matter which form they take. I love rich colors, careful compositions and themes that take me to emotional places. These basic tenets are part and parcel of a creative process that applies to both the literary and the painterly arts; although, admittedly, I've been doing a lot more painting lately than writing. I selected the FineArtAmerica.com website for its simplicity, to make it easy for friends, family and potential customers to access my portfolio at any time. Also, this well-designed site offers easy steps to order top-quality, custom-sized Giclee prints on canvas or paper with choice of frame if desired.
