This blog is dedicated to all things fine art and the life of a fine artist.
Do you have any of these mini christ portraits still available?
They are amazing :)
I love your work. Can you tell me how much the work in progress that is displayed on your website will cost?
Hi Mr. Richards. I’m not sure if you remember me but we talked recently on facebook and David Gianfredi is my teacher. Well I was just keeping you updated and I have my first blog. I hope you will check it out and comment on my work when it is up.
Thank you for your post, yesterday, about God’s most glorious creation: the human body. I appreciate your thoughts, and wish that our culture (world?) could be that calm and rational about the human body. All of the angst and freaking-out that goes on about the topic makes life so much harder for everyone. God bless you, and keep up the wonderful work you do.
Is this painting available: Jerusalem at Dusk, by J. Kirk Richards. 6.25 x 3 inches.
I just discovered your blog, and I love it! Thank you so much for putting this together. I love religious artwork and the work of classical artists. Your work feels to me to be along those lines. I’m an aspiring artist too (focusing on sculpture at BYU-Idaho). I want very much to share my love of the gospel through my art as you have done. Thanks for giving a guy like me some encouragement with what I’ve read so far in your blog. My first article was the your post about nude artwork. I appreciated your words.
I look forward to seeing more of your work! I’ve loved everything I’ve seen thus far! Thank you for sharing your fabulous talent.
P.S.: I’m also glad to see you got to go to Jerusalem. I studied abroad there myself at the Jerusalem Center. I loved seeing the artwork that came from that trip.
Is the painting Breath of Life available as a print ? It is beautiful!
I hope to have prints of this image within about a month.
I have no idea how I found it, but I am completely taken with “Cristo LVI (Golden Shroud).”
Do you have prints available for any of your Cristo paintings?
Seriously magnificent, my friend.
Thank you, Jack. I don’t have prints of these. There is one abstract, greenish Cristo that we print. I believe you can find that at http://jkirkrichards.com/store/
Brother Richards– I found your blog from the Deseret News article. I really like your artistic style. I am hoping to find an artist for a commissioned work. I see that you no longer do commissions but wonder if you have any suggestions for new up-an-coming artists who could use some work? It would be an oil painting of a pioneer scene from my family history. Thanks in advance for any info you could give.
Hi David. A few artists who might do a pioneer scene: Julie Rogers, Todd Orchard, Michael Bedard. I’d check with them, and maybe get more recommendations from them. Good luck.
Unbelievable images. This is your calling. Thank you.
im an undergraduate student and a fine artist from kenya. i just discovered recently that i could write about art too. This is because it challenges me to look at all paintings in a more deeper perspective than aesthetics. im planning on starting a blog. can you please advise me on this.
What sort of advice can I help you with, Ian? I recommend opening a WordPress account and writing a post. Then you can fine tune as you go.
