The Artist Says:

My sincerest hope is that upon introspection, the viewer will gain a greater appreciation for the beauty that is our world.


An award winning "Plein Air" painter and teacher, Rick McClure has been painting professionally for more than 40 years. Throughout his career he has enjoyed success with a variety of media including contemporary watercolor and large acrylic figurative works. However, his true passion is found in capturing both cityscape and landscape en plein aire. Many of his on location gems stand on their own while others form the basis for larger studio works, all of which sparkle with spontaneity. Mr. McClure has captured numerous awards including those at the "American Impressionists Society National Exhibition, the "71st Grand National Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club" and the Best of Show at the "Cincinatti Art Club's ViewPoint 2003". His free, painterly approach to recording locations in America and abroad has become popular with collectors nation wide. Rick McClure is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America, the The National Academy of Professional Plein Air Painters and the American Impressionist Society. His work is part of numerous corporate and private collections and he is currently represented by Wells Gallery, Kiawah Island SC, Bev's Fine Art, Raleigh NC, Howell Gallery, Oklahoma City, OK, and Rick McClure Studios, Oklahoma City, OK. Mr. McClure currently divides his time between painting, travel, and teaching plein air workshops throughout the United States.
