Rick Romano is a Virginia Beach artist who has made a living drawing and painting in the saltwater environment he’s grown up with. An avid windsurfer and surfer for over twenty years, Rick is forever inspired by the timeless beauty and power of the sea. His unique style colorfully reflects his passion for the ocean worldwide. In his earlier years, many of his works were of coastal landmarks such as old beach cottages, lighthouses and popular beach locations.
Today with the growing demand for tropical and surf-related themes, Rick is devoting his studio time for exactly these themes. Rick quotes, ” For most of my early years I drew surfers and waves, with palmtree beaches. Now that it’s in demand, I get to return back to a childhood dream and paint surfing for the fun of it.”
