"We were instantly drawn to the vibrancy depicted in each and every one of Richard's work. The colors, the movement, the light and the shadows take you to exactly that place depicted in the piece. You are in that beautiful place, hearing the lap of that crystal clear water, breathing in the sea air, feeling the gentle warm breeze on your skin. And that indeed is magic. We purchased several of Richard Shaffett’s paintings, loving each one of them individually for their uniqueness, but drawn to each one because of that feeling of being in and experiencing that time and place."
