Ron Windebanks Spring 2014 Art

It has been a long winter. And the Spring is barely showing with the all the cool days of rain. So as soon as the sun was shining, it was time for a fill of dramatic Spring florals. And there is no better place to get your fill of fine Spring blooms and floral painting then at Ron Windebanks Garden Art.
This Spring Ron is moving away from his Red and Blue period of paintings, and is now featuring florals and country animals primarily on white backgrounds. Even more interesting, Ron is using big barn doors and sidings for his "canvas" with the result that his painting have more dramatic impact. The following shots taken on the only day the sun was shining this last 2 weeks shows the new direction.
Here is a slideshow of the ew styling in Ron's Garden Art:

This year white is the background and florals abound. This viewer really likes the dancing Purple Petals and the bold Tulips Burst of Color . And for really robust hues try the Spring Bloom Detail where the old wooden siding adds burlap-like strength to the paintings. Also it is fascinating to see Ron’s workspace in the Barn with surrounding art work.
However, traditional flower arrangements like Early Lilac or Bouquet and Vase provide beauty with form. And the farm side is not forgotten with roosters and horses on scene. But for this viewer a stop at Ron’s place this year brought the simple Joy of Spring blooms aplenty and a warming spirit.
