    Rick began his quest to be an artist out of a love for nature at the early age of ten. He continued to paint through school, and after graduation Kelley took advantage of his father's transfer to Montana. There he used Montana's beauty as a backdrop and inspiration for his work. After studying at Eastern Montana University, Rick set out on his own. Less than ten years later in 1980, he began painting professionally.

    The Story behind this Painting “Homecoming” by Rick Kelley

    This painting was created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the tragedies from the events of 9-11 and honor the people who went beyond the call of duty then, and always throughout time.
    I believe that in order to live in peace and make the changes in the world necessary for us to get along, succeed, be prosperous, and ultimately survive, we need to start loving, and giving of ourselves unconditionally to each other. By going beyond the call of duty, doing and helping others in need, caring for all. Out of this comes the joy and peace of giving to the giver in grace from God.
    The words at the bottom of the painting say “OUR FREEDOM COMES NOT FROM THE GENEROSITY OF THE STATE, BUT FROM THE HAND OF GOD.” The words that followed this statement originally were, “so ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” The soldier is returning home, as he looks over at the picture drawn by his child nailed to a telephone pole with a yellow ribbon tied right below it, it states, In God We Trust, And I Love You Dad.
    Between the soldier and the town are ghosts of policeman, fireman, and soldiers honoring him for fighting for what they gave their lives for. One soldier was his buddy wearing the same deployment patch he is. As your eye follows the four telephone wires towards the town then beyond, you'll see four snow lines going up into the mountains. At the end of the line is four F-16 fighters flying in the formation of the missing soldier. Between the third & fourth jet is the three firemen raising the flag in front of the remnants of the Twin Towers in Manhattan. To the right of the fourth jet are the soldiers raising the flag at Iwo Jima. On one side of the main telephone pole in the mountain is Mother Teresa, who gave her life to the poorest of the poor. On the other side is Dr. Martin Luther King, who gave his life defending Freedom.
    In the snowiest part of the mountain to the left is the Pentagon, where world peace is defended daily.
    In flight, below the Pentagon is United Flight 93 with the immortal words of civilian Todd Beamer on the side of the plane it says “LETS ROLL.” At the top of the mountain is the American Flag and again in the mountain and the sky with our nation's symbol, the bald eagle souring to great heights over all the sacrifices in the name of God, Country, and Freedom.
    A wise man once said, “Freedom is not to do whatever one wants, but to do what one ought.”
