Dick Termes is a local legend born and raised in Spearfish, South Dakota. Education is a large part of what got him to where he is today, and we talk largely about his path to today. A big proponent of education, Dick encourages artists to continue pursuing higher education in art and to be a continued student while practicing their medium. We also talked about his unique discovery and process behind the six-point perspective.
This is a special episode. A little over a year ago, Dick and I had a similar conversation when I wrote an article for the Black Hills Visitor magazine. You can find that article a little here.
I loved getting the chance to speak with him today and see how much has even changed and evolved in his artwork over the period of time. It’s incredible how much he is still doing in the art world. I love that he is making his work digital and working on a virtual program for folks around the nation and globe to experience from their living room! After our conversation, you can stick around to hear a reading of the article and a little snippet of my experience in Dick’s virtual reality program.
