His name is Ron Gutman and I met him last year online whilst mingling on silk painting forums. It was clear to me right from the start that Ron had a talent and skill in his artwork which far exceeded the norm.
The subject matter of his silk paintings is extremely varied showing mastery in various techniques. And the colour combinations he uses are fascinating, bringing together hues that would otherwise have screaming matches with each other.
Like me he has a great love for clear crisp lines and gives great attention to detail.
This attention to detail extends to the incredible sculpted botanicals. I remember having to look twice the first time I saw a photo of one of his floral pieces as it was so lifelike I really couldn’t decide whether or not it was a photo of the real thing.
So come along on Wednesday 9th May and tune in to our chat to hear all about Ron’s journey as an artist. Find out what influences helped form his amazing signature style today.
And how can you join us? Simply by clicking on this link:

If you can’t manage to be there in real time, the same link should connect you later with the archived recording.
During the show I will be giving listeners like yourself the opportunity to call in and chat with us and ask Ron any questions you have. So feel free to call in via the toll-free number or Skype. I’ll be explaining how to do that at the start of the show to make you get connected with us if you’d like to.
And in the meantime I’d highly recommend having a look at Ron’s website. Let yourself be inspired by his extraordinary sculpted botanicals and striking ceramic earthenware.
