Dick McEvoy was first and best known as a painter in pastels, a medium he came to master. Decades of experience found him painting en plein air in all of the famous haunts of the Impressionists throughout France. But those pastels - even those from his native New England - were typically in smaller formats. So when he ventured instead into the medium of oils and attacked large canvases, the experience was a catalyst that encouraged him to more deeply explore the techniques of the Abstract Expressionists. His bravura brushwork has naturally evolved and he frequently uses the butt-end of his paintbrush as a stick to engage in his own drip-action painting. Squint at any large McEvoy oil on canvas and any number of famous members of the New York School will come to mind. But McEvoy has not run amok into the world of non-objectivity.

My story begins in late spring and early summer of I sold my house in South Africa that I had owned at the age of 27 and decided to travel the world again. He had written a book called Aggressive Political Participation as well as many articles on South Africa. As a kid my father took me to every Western movie that came to my home-town, Paarl, where I grew up in South Africa, so in my gratitude, I jumped at this opportunity. That was my big mistake because as we mounted our steeds and rode off waving goodbye to his daughter, I noticed that Professor Muller immediately broke into a quick trot, then canter, and soon a gallop.
