Watercolor landscape paintings by Paul Rickard are on display in July at Umpqua Bank, 1063 G St. in Arcata. An Arts! Arcata reception is slated for tonight from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Rickard is an artist and songwriter from Humboldt County. His songs, watercolor paintings and sculptures draw from the natural beauty of the windswept marine landscape.

Rickard studied art briefly in New Zealand and wood sculpture in Indonesia, graduated from UC Berkeley and served in the Peace Corps with his wife, Nancy.

Rickard is a career educator and currently serves on the faculty of Humboldt State University.
