Richard Surowicz, a painter currently living in Medina, Ohio, discovered how much he enjoyed the challenges of watercolor in 1992. From 1992 – 2000 he exhibited in regional and later, national shows. After the birth of his first son in 2000, Richard took an extended break from painting to focus on his family and career. It wasn’t until January of 2016 that Surowicz picked up his brushes again. He has been painting vigorously ever since. Recently, his paintings have been juried into the National and International exhibitions of The American Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Louisiana Watercolor Society, Georgia Watercolor Society, and The Ohio Watercolor Society. In 2017 he launched his YouTube Channel “Rick Surowicz Watercolor” which was recently selected by Feedspot.com as one of the Top 75 Watercolor Painting YouTube Channels placing it 8th on their list. Surowicz says “it’s not my intent to replicate but to interpret through the elements and principles of design. I enjoy the beauty of transparent watercolor and continue to learn and evolve with every painting, with every brushstroke”.
