Radio personality Ron Olson has another creative passion: painting! Self-taught, Ron expresses his love for the blues, rock ‘n’ roll, and the ‘road’ to the birthplace of great music: Memphis! From repurposing ‘found’ objects to seeing the beauty in a rusty metal canvas, Ron’s style is truly unique.
“Crossroads” was inspired by a trip to Greenwood, MS, and the gravesite of blues great Robert Johnson. The mixed-media piece features a rusty metal speedometer and an etching from the historic tombstone.
