Artist-naturalist-author Larry Ray Richardson grew up in Western Kentucky captivated by the outdoor opportunities of his surrounding rural environment. The nearby Cumberland River was prominent in local lore and recreation. Throughout much of his career, Larry has been involved with environmental conservation which has included writing, art production for the wholesale/retail market and fundraising for conservation organizations. Graduating from Austin Peay State University with a Master’s Degree in Biology, his professional environmental career included positions as Tennessee Parks Chief Naturalist and Chief of Information-Education for the Tennessee Wildlife Agency, where he also served as the editor of the agency magazine and Ducks Unlimited as National Director of Field Fundraising Initiatives.

Early in his career while working as a naturalist, Larry met one of his art mentors, wildlife artist Ralph McDonald. He took time out of the conservation field to join McDonald’s new art publishing business as general manager, handling operations, artist relations and managing an art gallery which he started. His environmental roots persuaded him to return years later by transitioning to the world’s largest wetland conservation organization, Ducks Unlimited. There he managed the field support department that also published and distributed wildlife art for fundraising.

After retirement from Ducks Unlimited, further interaction in the art world convinced him to utilize his talents as an artist. He continued his art education and began marketing his own paintings. Larry has judged several art contests, including the prestigious Nature Works Show in Tulsa. In 2021, he served as a judge for the prized Federal Duck Stamp.

Larry’s home and studio are in the Cumberland River town of Clarksville, Tennessee, not far from the Kentucky border. His art inventory includes a variety of scenes and media, including oil, watercolor and acrylic.

This piece is from our large art collection, assembled over a more than 50-year time span. The collection consists of original paintings lithographs, photographs, drawings, etchings, and other types of prints, as well as some mixed media pieces, all of which we'll eventually be listing on Craigslist Marketplace. As our main concern is finding new, appreciative homes for the pieces, we're pricing them to sell, at prices well below fair market value. Thank you for visiting our listings, and please don't hesitate to message us if we may be of further help.
