Ron Francis - Hanging Man - peinture à l’huile -

This man is in a helpless situation.
He is vainly hanging on to a hole in the wall that he could never fit through.
His vulnerability is reflected in his nakedness.

The inspiration for this painting came from my wife and 3 year old son being overseas in Denmark for six weeks, and my insecurity getting the better of me.

When I saw these clouds off in the distance they looked foreboding but when they were this close, I could see that they were moving independently from each other and I knew something was terribly wrong". Ron Francis

Ron Francis - The Lovers - peinture à l’huile
" There is not much I can say about this painting except that it expresses a wish that my wife and I be able to grow old together.

Ron Francis - Vacuum Cleaner - peinture à l’huile
