Rick Pas is an artist intrigued with surface textures and creating paintings that portray them in highly realistic detail. The goal of a painting is to feel like one can run a hand over the feathers or grasp an object in the painting. The subjects painted are usually based on the patterns and textures of nature and human interaction with nature.

Among his awards are an Arts for the Parks Regional Award, Society of Animal Artists Award of Excellence, Art Renewal Center Salon second, third, and honorable mention awards, and the Indiana Migratory Bird Stamp design. His art has appeared in national and regional publications. Influenced by Ingres, O’Keefe, Bateman, Lansdowne, photo-realism and impressionism.

Rick has exhibited at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, Anchorage Fine Arts Museum, Flint Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
His work can be found in collections across North America, including Ameritech and General Motors Corporation in Detroit, MI, and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, WI.
