Richard Franz – after 36 years of an architect career, Richard is doing pastel artwork. He has degrees from Lawrence Technical Institute and Harvard University Graduate school of Design. About 5 years ago he took a workshop and fell in love with pastel landscapes. As he travelled for business, vacation and commuting to work, he looks for beauty in the everyday ordinary scenes that we all pass by every day. Pastel painting is now his focus and he is looking forward to contributing to, participating in and learning from the member artists in the LSG.
He has participated in Arts and Apples in Rochester, Huron Valley Arts Festival and Devils Lake Arts Festival in Manitou Beach, MI
