I just had several new pieces sent to Houston for a gallery exhibit that will run from December 8 thru January 7th - and as they say - everything is bigger in Texas. This little big guy, Ernie, is 48" x 48".
My name is Ron Burns and my passion is helping orphaned animals find their furever homes. I began painting my own dog, Rufus, almost 18 years ago and then quickly switched my focus to painting animals up for adoption at shelters and rescue groups across the country. For each piece of art I sell, a portion of the sale goes to various animal welfare organizations. I consider myself blessed to bring forth the best in each animal I paint, and I dream that one day there will be no more lonely and I-want-to-be-loved eyes looking at me from behind caged doors.
And, I love my family - Buff (my wife of many years and high school sweetheart), Loganberry (cute little black lab mix) and Emma (our newest, cute Rottie mix).
