When not at SAS, Richard devotes his time to creating custom wedding gowns and painting oil portraits as well as designing and painting for the Center for Preforming Arts in Rhinebeck.

 An eclipse takes place when one body mass such as the moon or planet moves into the shadow of another body. The eclipse of the sun is something I will always remember here at Scenic Art Studios.
