About Richard Galusha

 


Richard Galusha grew up on his familyís ranch in West Texas where he developed a love and understanding for horses, which he has expressed in his art from a very early age. In his early teens his family, consisting of nine brothers and sisters, moved to Boulder, Colorado. After attending public school, he joined the Navy and traveled to the Far East, Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands. Richard had a studio in the barracks on the island of Guam and completed many drawings and paintings of island life, portraits of the sailors' sweethearts and paintings of Navy aircraft.
