Little Red Riding Hood

“Oh how beautiful the butterflies are, Little Red Riding Hood said, “I am ever so sorry to see them leave.” She bravely travels deeper into a forest that she sees changing before her eyes. “I must look into myself, change my heart.  If I ever hope to save this forest, I must transform…”


About 95% of the painting on this stunning work was done live at Maui Mystic, Lucidity Festival, and Bicycle Day events. Even though there was no model for this painting, her personality and humanity slowly showed up before my eyes as I painted. With lush thick brushstrokes and fine detail, it is a lovely sight to behold.

Prints of her are now available along with a lot more inspiring and magical art for the Holidays HERE.

Reception at JadeNow Gallery in Santa Barbara, July 31st


Great News! Yurik now has gallery representation!

The number of professional gallery spaces that show magical realism, spiritual, and visionary art in the United States is very small but growing. This is just another example that this amazing art genre and culture is finally gaining acceptance and appreciation by the mainstream.

The Art of Andrew Annenberg and Yurik Riegel will take place in Santa Barbara’s hottest new Gallery, Jade Now on Parker Way. The event, which runs from 7-10pm will feature presentations by both master artists earlier in the evening, followed immediately by a wine and cheese, 2 raffles, and a chance to meet Andrew and Yurik.

If you are in the area, or you are able to make it down to Santa Barbara, please join us for this very special evening.
