About Me

Since childhood, I have traveled around the world, learned foreign languages, and studied drawing and painting as well as art history. These days, I am most fascinated by recent research being done on forests and trees as well as on global climate as it affects our oceans, waterways and weather. I have acquired an extensive library on these topics.

I have an extensive archival website that provides more information about my life and education, travel, art exhibits, art prizes, collectors, and enthusiasms: the link to that website is rvaranafineart.com.


How to Acquire Artwork

All of the paintings shown here from the series Power of Water and Trees of the World are 40” x 40” in acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas. Unless they are labeled as sold, you can acquire them by contacting me directly by email at rvarana@archeform.com or by calling (240) 328-8937. All 40” x 40” acrylic paintings are priced at $1,000. The Moche Motif paintings are priced between $700 and $1000, depending on dimensions.

Professional packing, shipping and insurance within the USA for these large paintings is generally less than $270 and depends on shipping distance from Potomac, Maryland. 

All of the small watercolors are framed under glass and are priced, depending on their sizes, between $100 and $250. 

Visits to my studio in Potomac, Maryland—where many more paintings than are shown here are stored—can also be arranged. I welcome studio visits by appointment and all feedback.
