  • Dick McLaughlin is an artist inspired by color and the images he discovers emerging from the canvas as he paints.

    Originally from Massachusetts, costal waves and sunsets inspired some of his landscape and seascape work, he said. For five years he used pastel paints, but the dust bothered him so he switched to oil painting.

    He met his wife, Verna, in Boston in a pottery class. Along with painting, McLaughlin also enjoys sculpting, writing poetry and photography.
