Richie Carter

Artist/Painter in Kalispell, MT

Picture a jaunt through Europe, magic and beauty around on all sides. Beams of light hitting stately buildings in a way that they never will again. Walking past anchient cathedrals and the most treasured works of the old masters. And everywhere, every person has a story. No, it's not Fitzgerald or Hemingway. It is Richie Carter, whose uses plein-air painting to interact with people on a deeper, emotional level. 

APPLAUD THIS!

An Architect's Journey

BY MUSTAFA NAEEM
@ VOL 3 ON MAR 10, 2018

As an architect, Mustafa Naeem came across challenges and different styles in architecture and how he is still learning how vast this field is. Whenever he began to think about all he had achieved as a professional and felt that he had just about made it, something new would crop out of the corner. Mustafa's message to people and students of architecture is to keep exploring and discovering one's skills, and to more importantly to never quit.
