Dick was an accomplished artist well before he became part of the Class of 1963. You may want to read his biography before exploring the gallery. In addition to the drawing and photo contributions you see on the site, Dick was kind enough to send us some of his paintings. To view the larger image, click on the thumbnail, then click the Back button to return to the gallery.

Some of these paintings, as high quality prints, are available for purchase (indicated in red below). You may also request more information regarding private commissions. Please email the USNA63 Webmaster and your request will be forwarded to Dick. Please provide your postal and/or e-mail address so he can contact you.
