Ric Hall and Ron Schmitt are a couple of guys living in the Pacific Northwest who produce the most unusual pastels and paintings I’ve seen in a long time. As soon as I saw their work I knew I had to interview them!
I invite you to click on the IDareYouRadio logo above to listen in as I interview them. They work on the same pieces at the same time, side-by-side, totally defying the myth of the Artist Ego!
One is a veteran world-traveller, one is a love-to-stay-at-home guy, happy to never leave his backyard.
One is a let’s-just-do-art and nevermind the galleries guy, the other markets.
As they leave their egos behind, they create these marvelous, compelling images. The ones you see here are only a few of their huge collection. Click here for their site: Schmitt-Hall-Studios.com. Run your mouse over each image for its title, and click on any one of them to go to the interview.
I think their work is amazing, mysterious, and really powerful. I really love the color, the emotion and the sheer mystery in each piece which allows the viewer to make up his own story about what’s going on.
