The 2013 Clearwater Jazz Holiday Poster
Artist Rick Whalen
Rick Whalen was young when he began his art studies with his mother, a well known Niagara Falls painter that attended the University of Buffalo and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts, and continued studies at Albright Knox with well known artist. The family lived in Montreal, Buenos Aires, Rouen, and Baghdad before settling in St. Petersburg in 1956.
After years of working in oil with RR Robinson in his beach studio, Whalen began to experiment with water colors and fell in love with the transparency of the medium. He began plein air painting with Jan Mac Farlane in 1990 and continued studying with Bryan Ateyo, Tom Lynch, Tom Jones, Frank Webb, Don Getz, and continues with Taylor Ikin on Yupo Paper.
He says, “I am fascinated with the colors of Key West’s pastels, and the cheerful Caribbean palette of bright/vibrant colors. Much of his art incorporates these today. He is a juror on occasion, and generally likes the congeniality of fellow artists. In 2009 he took first and second prizes at The Beach Art Center on Indian Rocks in two of their summer shows. His art can be found all along the eastern seaboard. Much of his art is from private commissions.
