ARTISTS > Ron Macklin

Ron’s paintings strive to provide joy, mystery and a sensitivity to places, people and objects. He wants to honor his subjects for their accomplishments and service by removing distractions and painting in a celebratory light. Subjects may be organic or man-made, commonplace or grandiose, newly-minted or weathered over many years. He usually paints familiar surroundings and that means rural subjects in the Catskill mountains and urban NYC scenes.
Ron is an artist based out of Highmount, New York (in the Catskills) and Long Island, New York. He grew up in Brooklyn surrounded by art and was taught to draw and paint in oil by his father. Ron has studied at The Art Students League of New York, the National Academy of Design and the Art League of Long Island. Ron enjoys painting all subject matters and currently works principally in watercolor both in plein air and in his studio.
