Tax collector by ron crooks

Item Number: D0053


(1925 - 2006) Oil on canvas. 18" x 24". The dumbfounded homesteader scratches his head while the tax collector explains the bill . Ron painted about 200 oils of Western scenes a year. "I picked Western subjects because they let the artist use landscape, people, storytelling…I think the peak in art was the French Impressionist," he observes. "It is a looseness in style and the paintings that border abstract. I hope my style goes that way. My feeling is that if an artist lives to be 200, he will become an abstract painter, boiling down all he wants to interpret into his abstract essence. Basically, all painting is abstract. A good painting is a good abstraction." From the colleciton of Glenn Hayes. Hayes provided Crooks with the narrative and commission the painting.
