I love serious weather, and this painting is all about that! I used paynes gray, yellow ochre and prussian blue to get the deep storm color of the sky. The movement of the clouds and the water gives this work depth. Skies and weather are often the focus in my art. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

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.
