Bio

Ron Doyle

The artist uses his skillful blending of the two mediums to capture unique subjects with an attention to intimate detail. “The appreciation of art should not be considered as a simple pleasurable pastime. Art communicates a statement and becomes a permanent form of expression – a spark between me and my audience. I paint within a window, which reveals a small portion of a story. The true appreciation of my work comes from the intrigue beyond the frame – the interaction between what I create and what is seen – and the inspiration that keeps us coming back for more.”

Ron's paintings have received numerous awards from various juried exhibits. Most recently, “Mom's Hands,”  was awarded second place at the 2011 Carnegie Center for the Arts, Juried Regional Fine Arts Competition in Three Rivers, MI.

Statement

The still life is the only form of painting where the artist is
in control of the entire subject and the environment it exists within.
I have the constant desire for accomplishment.
The more I paint the more there is to do.
But then, if I accomplish something, I'll have nothing to do.
Art is a great mystery. Every artist never stops learning – and
the audience has never quite mastered how to see.
Each still life has its own story to tell.
I start with nothing. When it is finished, I still have most of it.
I don't need to be better than anyone else. I just need to be better than I used to be.
Most of the time, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.
If I were able to say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.
