Marine, Harding grad, abstract artist

Lt. Col. David Richardson’s Hector III
  • Lt. Col. David Richardson’s "Hector III"

Here's another great arts-related piece in the New York Times, about a 1988 graduate of Harding University (where he went on an art scholarship) and a Marine who'll be heading to Afghanistan in February who's having a show of abstract paintings in a gallery in the Georgetown neighborhood in D.C. He's a chiseled guy who — wow! — uses tons of pink in his work, the composition of which loosely reminds me of UARK artist Laura Terry's work. There's a slideshow linked to the Times' story.

He’s an artist on his way to his second war, and he wants to make one thing perfectly clear: He is not a Marine who paints, but a painter who fights.
