Profile: Larry Richardson

“I love the outdoors and I love to paint there. The rest of my leisure time is spent hiking, hunting, fishing, sailing, and biking. Rainy days are for painting in my studio.” Born in rural western Kentucky, Larry’s love of the outdoors led to a career that included an advanced degree in biology, work in parks and wildlife, art publishing, U.S. Senate and currently “a painter of where I like to be.” Larry has also written several books, the latest “Tennessee Wilderness – A Legacy Endures.” . “I guess you could say I’ve looked over the shoulders of a lot of great artists I’ve known, but I’ve also had some formal training.
