Ron is an expressive realist working in oils. 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.
