Founding Members


These two were the start of the painting below. I kept adding and rearranging. These are the paintings, the ones where I have a bunch of cars in a group, that I have the most fun doing and they are my personal faves. Stretch the parameters with a bink.

I am always amazed at how you can put together these alternate realities so convincingly, Ron. And with such beauty! ( I guess if you're going to create an alternate reality, it may as well be beautiful!)

Thanks Liz, I really don't know how I fell into creating my own scenes but I enjoy doing it. I have trouble copying things, its just no fun for me.

I think this one is a wonderful mix of your 'fantasy colored cars' and your new 'gritty' style. Do you plan the colors ahead, or does it just come to you as you paint? I've always wondered about that. This is just scrumptious. Always love the flotsam and jetsam floating in the grass too.

Thanks Tracy, I think the reason why I have always enjoyed painting cars and old stuff is that I can play with colour any ol way I want. I get all excited about painting the silly things cuz I can just let'er rip. I don't think any other subject would allow me so much lattitude.

This one has a really nice feeling to it. The shadows and colors are just right. The bright spot on the car on the right creates interest without being distracting. The house in the back is very well done, too.

Ron the only thing I love more than the painting is the title - this is a wonderful piece of work -

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, it was in a pile that was under my daughter's bed. I took some shots and there was some okay stuff.

Thanks Cara, more members were added and it became the painting below, I will post some versions of the bigger painting that I also found under DD1's bed, that I like later on. (Darling Daughter No.1)

love these kind. I really like the dark green on the left car.

(I keep meaning to try to get a picture of something that reminded me of you. There is one house that has an old car. Been there a while, but the other day there was a tow truck dropping off another old car. Same body style...his yard will look like your paintings soon)
