“Portal” by Ron Becker

Color and form found in nature inspires Ron to interpret what he sees, emphasizing composition and the values of light and dark to create movement and mood. As a realist, Ron uses color and variety of tones to create drama, inviting the viewer into the painting. Exploring new techniques and ways to work with mediums, as well as expressing the nature of his heart and soul, Ron focuses on environments that illicit a feeling of calm, serenity, beauty or the divine.
