Going, Going, Gone to the Other Side of the Road













Homesteading, logging, working in the mill, hauling shingles, growing your own grub, hunting and fishing, and then the kids head for the big city as soon as they are old enough. Maybe built a new house on the other side of the property? Bink to blow...up!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Billie, I am working on sort of a series with a recognizable style.

Michelle Smith said...

Nice, Ron. You certainly do have a recognizable style.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, but what if it sucks?

Michelle Smith said...

Oh, Ron! Don't be silly. It certainly doesn't suck. You have a great style!

Joan said...

I love the syle you use in these. It's fun that you save all these treasures in your mind, and then give us such lovely views to look at. Thanks.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I feel better now....

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, I think thats the thing that I sorta developed unconsciously or whatever, along the way - the scene creation, actually I did it almost right from the start.

You know what I like about your paintings? Besides the fantastic color, and cool cars...it's the wonderful tension between the very stationary vehicles and shacks, afloat amid your grasses that are so dynamic and full of movement. I always think of your grasses as waves...so yeah...that's what it is. Whew...another cosmic mystery solved!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Tracy, thats what I am aiming for...I think that tension from the floating in the grass thing is the fun of it. I had to have something to make them not just car paintings....because they are not car paintings, they are paintings with cars in them. I paint them for those who get it, not for car lovers or whatever. If car guys dig'em I'm happy but its about painting and telling the story.

Your paintings always evoke a story when I view them Ron. I must say they also bring feelings to the surface. This one gives me a strong feeling of nostalgia and isolation, though not in a bad way!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Jeff, the stories are fun to do.

Clive said...

Lovely Ron. Dang, you're on a roll; it would have been great if you could have done a Cumberland thing for this artwalk. Not that I think all that much will come of it...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Clive, where's Cumberland?

Is that a door on the second floor? I love when houses do that, we had one down the street from us and I always imagined how they used it :p

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., yes thats a door and there is a plate on side of the house so there must have been a deck or something-stairs?
