International Award-winning art
by Richard Pedersen

....Mr. Pedersen’s artwork can best be described as "exciting dramatic photographic realism" with a three dimensional quality that makes the viewers actually feel like they are part of the action. Every painting appears to be painstakingly crafted, with all of its elements dramatically arranged to capture forever, a beautiful moment in time.
....The vibrant colors that he selects add to the drama, helping the viewer to actually feel that moment. It is the careful blending of these vibrant colors with subtle contrasts, that give each of his paintings a characteristic "softness", which is his trademark.
....Once you've seen his paintings and in particular, his skies, the trademark is unmistakable. New York born Rich Pedersen has become to railroad art collectors, what John Stobart is to marine art collectors. Each railroad painting is painstakingly researched so that it is accurate down to the last rivet on the locomotive.
....Perhaps this attention to detail is due to the fact that this artist is also a Stevens Institute of Technology mechanical engineer. His paintings are now in many private collections, have been displayed at the trolley museum in Branford, CT., and have appeared on the cover of the "Keystone" (PRRT&HS magazine), in "Trains Illustrated", and on the cover, centerfold, and inside several issues of "Railpace" magazine. and in Al Staufer's book New Haven Power.

About the Lithographs
....All sizes are created on museum quality Lustro Saxony 80# acid-free paper using the most durable inks technologically available. All except the 8" X 10" sizes are signed and numbered. These beautiful lithographs are not “prints”. Prints are a low quality, high volume process that simply does not compare to high quality lithography.
