Ron painting with grandson Duffy
His artwork is usually acrylic and/or pastel on canvas, influenced by the work of his mother, Barbara, a watercolor artist, and by the Abstract Expressionists of the mid-20th century, such as Hans Hofmann, Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline and Joan Mitchell.
He was one of five featured Dayton-area artists whose work was featured in a traveling exhibition of nature-themed work to mark the 50th anniversary of the Five Rivers MetroParks. His work has been featured on ThinkTV’s “The Art Show” and on the cover of Mock Turtle Zine, a Dayton arts journal.
