itso Art for Optimism is a movement that artist Richard Olivarez created to dedicate time to reflect on the dark nights of his past, celebrate the bright days of today, and prepare for the even brighter days to come. Utilizing only the finest materials and a self-taught technique that incorporates light sculpting and heavy painting these initial handcrafted pieces have been dubbed the Early Collection. Part of being an optimist and a forward thinker, Richard realizes life is long and these works of art are indeed the early collection. With a long term goal of transitioning into a full time artist he invites you to follow along as his art career develops and progresses.
"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise"
