Rick Akers is a University of Dayton graduate in Commercial Design and he has been in the art field his entire career. He started painting as a result of collecting of antiques and vintage paintings. Rick’s work is heavily influenced by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. His paintings are done totally with a palette knife and on location “en plein air”, French for “under the open sky.”

“My goal is to capture a fleeting moment in time,” says Rick, “An impression of what I see and feel… A glimpse of light, a flicker of color, a breeze in the trees.”

Rick’s piece “Efflorescence” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of his artwork at sharonweissgallery.com
