Ron Larson paints what he feels. With an art career spanning 40-plus years, his philosophy is that everything presents itself as art.

"Sometimes I use the bold colors of oil, and sometimes the softer feel that watercolor offers, but always finding contrasts, where there are deep, dark shadows and striking reflections of light. I spend my time in nature looking for places that speak to me, that give me a special feeling of peace and beauty.”

Ron has been in numerous juried shows throughout the United States and has won myriad awards and recognitions. Most recently, he won Best of Show from the Outdoor Painters Society, Honorable Mention from the Oil Painters of America, and Merit Award from the National Oil and Acrylic Painter Society. His art was featured in Southwest Art magazine as a finalist for two years running in its Artistic Excellence competitions.

Ron’s recent activities include the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park Plein Air Invitationals, having six paintings chosen by Utah universities in their public art calls, being tapped for artist-in-residence at several national parks, and having paintings in major exhibits in California, Massachusetts and Missouri.

His latest major project has become a traveling exhibit. “Vistas and Visions of the Colorado Plateau,” is a solo exhibit of paintings from a 130,000-square-mile area that contains 17 national parks and monuments, as well as myriad state parks. It was first on view in northern Arizona, then traveled to northern Utah and southern Utah. The exhibit features approximately 45 of his original paintings, a PowerPoint explaining his creative process, and the work-in-progress building of an interpretive book. The book highlighting his art and explains the geography, history, anthropology, geology, biology and archeology of the Colorado Plateau. Ron’s book is scheduled for publication in early 2019.
