Jim's painting, done from a sketch he made of me in 1977, is the cover for the current issue of UFO Magazine. The drawing he did is over thirty years old, but he kept it, and about three years ago, did this painting.
I was wearing exactly what's painted here, reading on the deck of a friend's house who lived on the McKenzie River in Oregon. (Can you spot the UFO in the painting? :)
You can subscribe to the magazine, or find it at bookstores like Barnes and Noble. In my area, (Eugene, Oregon) hard to find on news stands, but for some odd reason Winco carries it.
James Rich grew up in the Los Angeles area, and has been living primarily in Oregon for more than thirty years.
He has shown in numerous venues locally, and was accepted into the Eugene Mayor's Art Show, winning the People's Favorite Choice award, and has designed a CD cover for the New Age/Fusion group Mythic Sky.
