Richard Singer was a multiple prizewinner in Northwest Water Media art shows and a former President of The Northwest Watercolor Society. He studied at the University of Washington and Cornish in Seattle. Richard`s new series is ``The Live Sea Scrolls``, painted on raw canvas. Raw canvas presents some problems which he finds interesting to solve. (It bleeds beautifully, but is very hard to get fluid brushstrokes.) ``I love to solve those problems``, says Richard, ``and I`m fascinated with ancient written languages, so I`ve used that, too.`` He still is making hand-made brushes and using them to make quickly executed characters on some paintings. He may then add photo-images or additional painted images to the work. He feels it is the closest he has been to converting his own energy directly to a painting. The ``Island Boxes`` are an ongoing series. They allow Richard to use ALL the media, 2D and 3D, plus the bonus of browsing any available antique or junk shops,looking for old boxes and strange, evocative objects. ``Being an artist has been a lucky, lucky part of my life``, says Richard. ``It`s the most free I can imagine being.``
