When Rick Lenz is not riding away on his next kaleidoscopic quest, he can be found at home painting, playing piano, or reading with his wife, Linda. His art is punchy, soulful, and a clever read between the lines. He adopted one of his favorite and most colorful pieces, Rideaway, as his logo.

“It speaks to me of the willingness we all have, even the need, to always gamble, to take a leap into whatever fate may bring.”
– Rick Lenz on his “Rideaway” logo
