I call these small works "Shorts!" Small in size but with a strong carrying power–the vision is strong far away, not just close up. This painting was done on Arches paper mounted to a cradled birch wood panel. I mounted the paper with Lineco, an archival mounting material. This little piece is tough, durable and cute! It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Ronda

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.
