Balboa Park Reflecting Pool by Randy Riccoboni. The burgundy and brown hues of the Botanical Building set against the green water lilies and lotus flowers in the large shimmering koi pond in San Diego. Painted in the Impressionist style.
Riccoboni’s Impressionist art and Realism art includes California Art, San Diego Art, Los Angeles Art, San Francisco Art, New York Art, Manhattan Art, New York City Art, Connecticut Art, New England Art. Color is the first thing you notice about my work. What makes it ‘pop’ is the placement of color and texture. The primary colors in my palette are derived from the colors in the original rainbow flag which represent sexuality, healing, sun, nature, art, harmony and spirit. As a painter I am a visual storyteller. A message comes with the art – perhaps it is playful, calming, erotic, disturbing, political, or even sacred. I like to flirt with the issues and experiences we face in everyday life, the things we do and the places we go that define our lives. Whether positive, humorous, or thought provoking, my work portrays events people relate to while creating a sense of place for the viewer. RD. Riccoboni
