around the same time as me... typically 1 am. We’d usually start with a bass riff or drum pattern and move on from there. After a couple of months of those drunken jam sessions we had


enough songs for an EP” explains Robles. The duo then took the music to the next level, adding a singer and drummer.

Master Artist, and Best- Selling author RD “Randy” Riccoboni “What drives and inspires me is a passion for forward thinking. I pick up on the posi- tive and beautiful vibrations of color, contrast, perspective and spirit that surround our daily lives and create art with a mission that is trail blazing for others artists and non-artists. I hope my art work will trigger inspiration and happiness in you to create and make the world a better place starting right in our own neighbor- hoods whether you are the cre- ator, the appreciator or both.” Known as The California

Artist who paints spectacular landmarks boldly painted with exciting impressionistic style in happy colors are his trade- mark, and the results of his

career have been astounding. RD Riccoboni, Randy to his friends, is an innovative self- taught artist and best-selling author who began painting at age four when he got into his mothers paint-by-numbers. The artist credits encourage- ment by family and teachers for his drive and inspiration that has led the way to his suc- cess as a best-selling author, speaker and inspirational visionary. In 2007, he moved his popular Beacon Artworks Gallery into the beautiful Fiesta de Reyes in Old Town’s San Diego State Historic Park. His paintings on canvas

and paper depict travels, places of local interest including San Diego landmarks and

everyday life experiences. RD’s internationally recog- nized artwork represents com- munity and a sense of place in a positive and life-affirming manner. A fan of architecture, RD is currently working on drawings and paintings of vanishing historic American buildings and landscape for his Art Traveler project. Next time you’re in Old

Town, enjoy a visit to Beacon Artworks Gallery or visit from the comfort of your home.
