Hope everyone is well. Keep creating.

My daddy "Captain Richard" love creating burning or destroyed buildings. This is one of my favorites. He had since dismantled this one as everything was in a constant state of change, upgrading and reworking in the war room. It's been just over 6 months since he has passed and I miss him terribly. I hope all of his artist friends are doing well. Much love xoxo-
The Captains' daughter Mindi

  1. Your father was a gentle genius. His work that I have had the privilege to view via his blog in my opinion was of the highest museum quality modeling.

    I still often view his vignette of the ACW troopers watching one of their own painting. I'm an old retired painter, and this picture brings back lots of joy I had plying my trade for so many years.

    God bless you.

  11. Thought of your dad the other day while working on a project that he inspired me to undertake. Hope things are a little easier for you and your family Mindi - only time can heal.

  13. Dear Mindi, it is so lovely to hear from you and see your father's work again. I used to so admire the way that he would happily recycle buildings and use them elsewhere in the war room, secure in the knowledge that they would be always work. I have an unfinished building that has elements that were directly inspired by the good Captain and reading this has inspired me to complete it over the summer holidays.

    Best wishes,

    Michael

  15. Great pic of your dad's work, I supose it's yours. It will be nice to see Captain's work from behind your eyes. Maybe, furtherly you could add some more great stuff, as your father did. Hope not had been kind of rude askin it. Be sure that we will be following it.
    My mom (Maria Isabel) passed away just a month ago and believe me, I know how do you feel.

    Best wishes and blesses for you Mindi.

  18. I was always amazed at the wonderful things that he created, and his designs often times gave me ideas and inspiration for projects on my own table. He and I discussed much on how he did things, and I was just at the point where I would look at him and say "You are a genius and I am not worthy"...He always took it in good stride....I miss him greatly....
