Ron Spelman who paints
in oil and draws in pen and ink prefers figurative work. Some of his
be spent painting landscapes, some seascapes an occasional animal most
often horses....but always comes back to his true love (and it's really
a passion) people! Portraiture
of folks with interesting faces (it's often all about faces, attitude)
dancers, athletes and nudes - not necessarily
in that order.
Ron is a current member of the San Diego Portrait Society (and a past
president), The Market Street Group, Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild and
The La Jolla Art Association and has won awards at various shows and
venues such as the San Diego Portrait Society and the San Diego County
in Del Mar, California.
Ron had a successful career in the finance business both on Wall Street
and in San Diego where he owned his own investment firm Spelman & Co.
He currently resides in La Jolla, California. where he spends much
of his time working to capture on canvas such elusive things as skin
values, lights and darks with proper contrasts and proportion. And
when he puts it all together it's his equivalent of hitting a grand
run...it's then that he reaps the rewards of the hard work that all
successful artists apply to their craft.
