Rick Bainbridge's Profile
I am a Colorado native and have spent my life living, working and studying our wild lands and the magnificent animals that call them home. I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful mountains outside of Colorado Springs, where inspiration abounds.
I am a self-taught artist who specializes in wildlife, western and landscape subjects, and work mostly in oils, but I also enjoy watercolor and pencil. Although I love to paint anything, I tend to favor painting birds, especially songbirds and birds of prey. Through the years I have developed the nickname, The Bird Man. I love color and fine detail and this is a perfect match with birds. They are very difficult to paint but that is part of the fun.
I spend my winters locked up in the studio creating new works and then like a bear I leave my painting hibernation to travel the Colorado outdoor art…
