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.

Dick died August 13, 2019 and prints are no longer availble.
