Ron Thomson grew up in Florida and has worked as a professional oil painter all his adult life. Since earning his BFA with an emphasis on painting at Florida State University, Thomson has lived and painted in Florida, Oregon, Alabama, Colorado and Georgia.
Ron is an expressive realist working in oils on canvas. His paintings celebrate common and humble subjects elevated by their collaboration with light. His collectors often describe his work as “seemingly alive”. Thomson’s goal is to compel the viewer to bypass thoughts about style and technique and create a communion of shared experience between himself and his collectors.
