My name is Christopher Trian. Richard was my teacher in the Graduate Program at SF State University in the late 1980's, graduating in 1990-. He was the greatest influence in my painting life, teaching me to "paint what I see'. I am a portrain painter and I have exibited widely. My web site is: Christophertrian.com..e-mail: Chris_Trian@Yahoo.com..phone: 415-242-i548. Phone is best to contact. I would very much like to attend any memoriial for Richard. I liked him so much and he said I had "Moxy". I would like to do a portrait of him and pay my respects to him and his lovely family. I feel we were a dynamic part of each other's legacy. PLEASE contact me and tell me how I can attend the memorial and if I am too late how I can meet his wonderful family and make contact with this most influential artist in my life and true friend. Sincerely and with love...Chris (Christopher) Trian

My 50 year friendship with Richard was an important and valuable part of my life. I admired his talent as a brilliant painter, a scholar , his sense of humor and a warm and caring human being and I loved him. In 1985 Richard and Darlene came to Spain to spend the summer with Leta and I at our home in Horta de Sant Joan. Upon discovering the landscape of this Catalan village Richard would trek out to the countryside to do watercolors of the area. This was a seminal period for him as a painter as he made a departure from painting horses which he is known for internationally. I will miss him deeply and my heart goes out to his family , Darlene, Caitlin , Ian and his grand children.

He may be gone, but the memories live on in your hearts.

Richard will truly be missed. As a graduate student at SFSU from 1974 to 76, I had the opportunity to study with him. In those two years, time and time again, he had a way of telling you in words what you were feeling about the work you were struggling with, plus ways to resolve the problem. His focus and dedication as a artist and instructor always came through when I would talk with him. His witticism and wonderful knowledge of art history made me think…Yeah, it's going to be okay to be an artist. If not being given that opportunity to study with him, I know I would not be the artist I am today.

With my deepest sympathy,
Guy Diehl
