Ross Lynem said...

Glad i stopped by! I too love the blue sky and the warm fender color surrounded by the cooler darks.
Very nicely done.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Joan, cerulean is good...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Ross, warmest warms against coolest cools or something...

Hi Ron; Do you frame your own paintings? Have you ever varnished them so they can be framed without glass? I am struggling just now with framing costs etc. and even considering acrylics. Thanks Ron. sure enjoy your blog. Will have to come by more often i think.
Cheers! Ross

I love how you painted the pine trees, they're abstract but not too much that you can't recognize them as being trees ;]
Your car watercolors are really intriguing! Can't wait to see more.

Thanks, Maddie, there'll probably be more...

Cara said...

Wow Ron! The color in this painting is very rich - beautiful -

Nureeya Panichnok said...

Hi again Ron,
It's so great what you did newly with this painting.
I love it!!!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Ross, I have a friend who has a framing shop and I can get my paintings framed but I am about a hundred behind...I don't use varnish as they can't be entered in shows if they are varnished.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Cara, in real life this painting is much more nuanced, it has lost something in translation to the internet...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Nureeya, I have been fiddling a little...

Ross Lynem said...

Thanks Ron for your reply re: framing. A hundred is quite a good lot. I am two behind i think. Smile! But i may be giving framing a try. It might be a good sideline perhaps. I also like what you did with this painting. You have a great way with the old cars. The way you capture the rust and the age is downright amazing!

Ron Morrison said...

I think that framing is always a problem and that if you can get equipment and do it yourself its a good idea.

Hey Ron, I've dropped in here the odd time and mean to give a shout sometime, but have been stupidly busy. Haven't commented as I don't know what to say. Your work is always worth the visit. Had to repost this due to spelling errors that made me look like an oaf.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Clive, I'm still here doing the same thing...
