In the beginning, R.T. focused his pencil and brush on commercial illustrations, wildlife art, and vehicle graphics. From the late 1970’s, the fine art subjects of R.T.’s work varied from North American wildlife and landscapes to portraits, from classic motorcycle and automobile art to vehicle graphics, from historical aviation to Civil War battle scenes, and currently from leather jacket art to nose art. The prolific nature of R.T.’s illustrations and fine art often seems divided into periods where a single theme will dominate his work but R.T. never limited himself to any single subject matter. After forty years of service, R.T. retired as a visual information specialist at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma and resided in Oklahoma City with his wife and family. Samples of R.T.’s work are worldwide throughout public and private collections. Some of his larger murals are on exhibit at Warner Robins AFB, Wright Patterson Air Logistics Headquarters, the former Oklahoma Air and Space Museum at Omniplex, and at Tinker AFB. Prints of his works are in the collections of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, the Commemorative Air Force’s Air Heritage Museum, the Flight of the Phoenix Museum, and others. In addition, four very special tributes to Oklahoma’s veterans are on display in the Oklahoma State Capitol portraying Oklahoma’s leading ace, the U.S.S. Oklahoma, the 45th Infantry, and Tinker AFB. R.T. greatly enjoys working with veterans and their associations and hopes that his art plays a special part in the tribute and remembrance of their efforts. He further enjoys working with environmental organizations, such as the Oklahoma Wildlife Department, to preserve nature and the beauty that is inherent in the simplest natural setting.
