Altions...painted When 17years Old
Painting - Acrylic
THIS IS MY VERY FIRST PAINTING.AS A TEENAGER
I had always drawn using pencil, pencil crayon and charcoal but had never done a full brush and paint image. one day in my teens I thought I would give it a try. I purchased canvas, brushes and acrylic paints and went to work. This painting is from my mind which I quickly did a pencil outline on the pre gesso canvas and started painting. So intrigued by the effect I lost complete track of time and 22 hours later I stood back to see what my first attempt had become...I call him Altions. This painting is still in my possession now 50 years later. ......
Ron Haist is an award winning artist encompassing a broad range of creative forms.
He has successfully expressed himself using various mediums such as pencil, pen and ink, oils/acrylic, airbrush, photography, poetry and pyrography.
As an artist that captures Canadian scenes, his work has spread throughout North America and Europe.
Growing up in Hespeler, Ontario (now part of Cambridge), his natural surroundings provided endless inspiration to sketch. His subject of choice has always been rural scenes, nature and wildlife. As a boy with a vivid imagination, Ron had snowmen riding horses.
As time progressed his photography skills preserved his subjects for later pieces of art. Rons keen and creative eye has also won him photographic awards for outstanding captures.
In the 70s, airbrushing was yet another form of creative expression and produced many award winning works. All the while Ron was still creating canvas pieces and showing in galleries.
Rons natural artistic talent is also found in his words of expression. We have included some of his thoughts and feelings through poetry.
During the past few years, Ron has found himself venturing back into an area of creative expression he used as a boy, Pyrography. This art form has also met with great enthusiasm by viewers and again, has brought accolades and awards.
It is with great pleasure that we share a small glimpse of a diverse artist, through the world and words of Ron Haist.
Painting is poetry, that is seen rather than felt.
