In this episode, I chat with Ron Rollins, an Action, Abstract, and Gestural Painter. (He also happens to be my former newspaper editor!)  We talk about what inspires his art, what drew him to his particular style of painting, childhood and other influences, and tip he has for creating–and appreciating–art of all styles.

Note: Ron cites several artists whose work influence his own, including Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, and Hans Hofmann.
