Last year Martin requested Berry as artist for his limited edition werewolf novel, The Skin Trade, published Nov 2013. Rick created the cover and several paintings for the books interior. We’re pleased to announce Blackstone Wood (above) and 2 other Rick Berry’s oil paintings from this book are in George R.R.Martin’s private collection in Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Author of mega-popular Game of Thrones and so much more, did you know Martin is also a star in world of independent cinemas? He’s the driving force behind saving and reviving the Jean Cocteau Cinema in his home community. Rick and I happen to be lucky to enjoy a favorite old theater from 1920′s in our town. We admire that George is supporting a venue that makes wonderful memories for everyone. Screenings include classic, cult, and new movies; also live events from music, theater, and literary worlds. Just one example, last year Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer performed. New things happen almost daily. 

AND…George R.R.  Martin has also installed an ART GALLERY at Cocteau Cinema. He’s invited Rick to show work there in the future! That’ll be fun.skintrade books for post

Peek in today as we open doors for the first time with a select group of archival pigment ink prints! http://store.rickberrystudio.com Signed and numbered. All are printed with pigment inks on fine art matt paper in very small editions.  Rick printed this selection himself -with assistance from artist friends – to assure fidelity to each original art work. We  have been asked so often if Rick will sell prints of his compelling oil paintings and finally made some time to produce these. Let us know what you think.
