The Incredibly Gifted Ron Hedrick- Artist- "Colorist"- Oil Painter

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011

So last week I had the wonderful fortune of meeting Ron Hedrick while he was taking some photos for a painting that he has been commissioned to do. Please see my other blogpost on this topic.

It was just such a wonderful event. As I had been riding around Stanley Park,we had just left Lumberman's Arch and gone past Siwash Rock and I was saying prayers of Gratitude for the beauty of the moment. Breathing in the fresh FRESH air, that gorgeous green soft forest scent and the saltiness of the ocean and WOW I was high on life and blissing out in the magic of it all. Then we stopped and really I think a miracle happened. I was rewarded with a wonderful gift. I met Ron Hedrick.

Ron Hedrick -

 Critically acclaimed in the US and Canada, Hedrick is often referred to as a “colorist”, “ illuminist”  and modern impressionist. His works have frequently been featured in publications such as “Magazine Art”, "American Art Collector", “International Art” and “Readers Digest” cover image and countless news articles.

His real passion is painting outdoors on location, whether alone or with a group of fellow art enthusiasts.
