"Ron Barsano is known and loved for his ability to capture the essence of life in his art. He ignites our imagination with his still life's and transports us to places of wistful beauty with his landscapes. He offers us the true glory of reaction with his figure work and celebrates the human soul in each of his portraits. From the pain of a soul denied to the gentle beauty of a rose in bloom, from the graceful serenity of the human form to the spirit of the person in his portraits, Ron Barsano captures it all in his art."
