Ronda Waiksnis captures abstracted, atmospheric movement through her direct application painting process. Rarely using brushes, she applies heavy layers of paint with large palette knives and other tools, shifting the oil paint instinctively. Ronda is inspired by her natural surroundings and strives to capture the mood of any given day. The artist uses muted earth tones and receding horizon lines to demonstrate depth, conveying the transient sky or evanescent reflections in water with expressive feeling. Ronda aims to make art that is emotive and visceral, organic and unrefined. She is passionate about the endless possibilities for innovation that being an artist offers.

Hi Tom, What a great question! Here's a few thoughts for framing works on paper. The most important thing is to do nothing to the work of art that isn’t reversible. Nothing permanent should be adhered to an original work of art. Make sure the framer intends to T-hinge or "float" the painting to the framing materials and that they use only archival materials. So contact adhesives, dry-mount materials, tapes that aren’t intended for matting purposes or many other pastes and glues available should not be used. Also, if you use glass make sure it doesn't touch the painting. This painting has been varnished and actually could be framed without glass. This painting has a beveled, interesting edge and I always recommend floating it on top of a mat. This technique really shows off the fact that it’s an original. Also placing the painting on top of a mat, instead of underneath it, will help expand the painting visually, especially since it's a landscape. In terms of colors I would choice a pale mat that closely matches the most prominent color of the painting. I like the idea of a soft metallic for the frame for this piece but your surrounding decor might be a consideration also. Thanks so much and please let me know if you have any other questions!

We just purchased your "Colors of Huitt Creek" painting and wondered if you had any suggested framing thoughts. It will be going on a light white wall so no wall color issues. Matted, not-matted. If matted, single, double? Just wondering what the artist's thoughts are.
Hi Mary, This is the only version of this painting. It's an original so it is the only one of it's kind. Thanks and please let me know if you have any other questions. Ronda
are there two versions of this painting?
