The Artist Says:


ARTIST'S STATEMENT


by Ron Sanders
 
I am inspired to paint by all that the world has to offer, in the feast of visual and emotional experience.
I am moved by the struggle between joy and sorrow; the narrative history of every human life with its challenges and victories.
Through the medium of oil paint I find versatility and freedom of expression. I enjoy the contrasts that create impact and illusion.
It is my goal to skillfully paint the essence of a thing in such a way that it touches the heart of the viewer.
