It's all about Ron / by Tom Montan

Ron Rodgers - an iconic and larger than life sculptor who has been part of the ever active art scene in Sebastopol CA. for many years. Ron was the subject of a portrait I painted four years ago HERE. I have loved this piece for many reasons - importantly it is my first painting on a dibond aluminum substrate - i also love that it was done in black and white and captures the wildness of Ron in the flurry of his hair. It is a simple piece but quite large.

I was honored have this piece placed in Ron’s home last year. I was also thrilled to have it reproduced in banner form and placed on the Main Street in Utica New York. Both pictured here - the picture with Ron gives you a sense of how large it is!
