From Ron Jewell:

In recent years. I began to prepare myself for retirement. The whole concept of leaving a long career in the performing arts seemed like giving in somehow. I just didn’t have any direction for what to look forward to. Finances aside, I wasn’t ready.

About ten years ago, I’d asked my daughter on a lark, to get me a starter painting kit. I began to push paint around a canvas without any instruction, playing all over the pallet with great folly, while watching a variety of video demonstrations and tutorials on techniques and style.

As I discovered new paths for expression, the exhibit may seem, at times, a little tangential, but the randomness in styles reflects the search for my own voice. I’ve found a new sense of purpose and rely on my creative energies to navigate the ‘Second Winds.”

I paint for myself, but I’m ready to include my circle of friends. You will excuse my amateurish attempts, but I hope you will also celebrate the never-ending power of an inspired imagination.
