Paintings by Ron Mueller

I saw this painting the other day and I have to say it took me by surprise.
It was painted by the father of a friend of mine.

I guess at first I thought it was just a simple study of flowers in acrylic paint, but it was more complex than that.

Those are some crazy petals !!

I wonder if Ron is just using the flowers to illustrate people. Showing us that despite differences between us, it's still possible to grow and even flourish together.

I don't know...I guess I'll have to ask him.

Here's another painting, a water color that he did shortly after the 9/11 disaster in NY..

I am afraid my camera does not do Ron's art much justice, this picture is actually quite large and I couldn't get the entire picture into one frame.

A closer look at the "Angels helping each other" in the picture

I really could not come up with a post today, but Ron's pictures are worth, at least, a thousand words.
