R. John "Bob" Ichter

Also known as "Bob" to his friends, Ichter's romantic pastels are richly colored and hand-rubbed onto lushly textured black suede archival board. According to Ichter, each piece is designed to evoke a certain time of day and to transport the viewer to another place.  Autumn and dusk are favorite themes, which have been inspired by landscapes from around the world. You may find yourself gazing into the rolling hills of the French countryside, strolling along a windy Normandy beach, exploring a pathway through a North Carolina Blue Ridge forest, gazing at a dragonfly resting upon a patch of waterlillies in Claude Monet's gardens at Giverny or floating along the river Seine. Be it sunrise, sunset or a full moonlit night, you are certain to want to return again and again.

 

From the Artist:

It is very rewarding to have people love the artwork I do. It's also pretty cool to travel to the different galleries that represent me for shows and schmoozing and painting in person. I really like having people watch while I paint. I enjoy traveling, especially to Europe and get a lot of inspiration for my work from my travels. I live alone with my 2 dogs, Bogey and my new puppy Joe. They are both whippetts [ kind of like miniature greyhounds] We live in the Little Five points section of Atlanta. It is a very cool neighborhood where we can walk to all sorts of restaurants, bars and clubs. Along with biking and golf, in my spare time, I teach and train in a form of karate called Cuong Nhu.
