Ron has been painting ever since he can remember. Primarily working in oils and acrylics, he has been greatly influenced by the Hudson River and Barbizon Tonalist painters. He prefers to paint in the contemporary realist style always pushing for that elusive and intoxicating vision of that next painting that could satisfy the never ending quest for the beauty and truth of life.
Ron is also a musician/composer and for many years owned and operated a recording studio primarily dedicated to film scoring. He currently enjoys creating and recording original musical compositions for some of his larger paintings which are included with the sale of these paintings on a CD. "I hear music when I am painting and I see graphical images when I am creating music. It all seems to come from the same place manifest in these two different mediums."
"But I choose to create music where painting chooses me. Therefore, painting is my true passion".
Ron is a New Hampshire native and currently lives and paints in the Sunapee region of New Hampshire. "New Hampshire is a great area to live if your an artist. There seems to be a new painting around every corner and over each hill." New Hampshire has a great history of artists coming to the state to live and pursue their creative visions. Most notably were the Dublin and Cornish artists colonies in the early 1900s as while as the White Mountain School period in the mid to late 1800s. "It is always great fun to study some of the paintings done from those periods and then go out and try to find the actual spot from which it was painted."
Ron's paintings can be found in many private, corporate and government collections nationally and internationally.
