Rich Onica

“I have been oil painting on and off since I was younger but have really  painted steadily over the last 8-9 years. I love and have a passion for nature and wildlife so my main subjects are naturally landscapes and animals.
I first painted en plein air in the late summer of 2008. I love the challenge and experience of being outside the studio while trying to capture nature. It can be very frustrating, exhilerating, humbling and rewarding all at the same time!!! I will forever be on the "Plein Air Learning Curve" enjoying every minute!
