Ronda Burnside, Lafayette Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement Growing up in Oregon around beautiful trees, foliage and flowers has given me an appreciation for the natural beauty around me. I have taken a variety of art classes, everything from calligraphy to watercolor. I also have been painting on glass for the past ten years. My artistic mother encouraged me to see the beauty in nature and I can now capture the visual world I see on my digital camera and receive instantaneous results! We moved to California when I was in my teens and I've grown to love the beauty I find in this sunny state. I have sold my photo greeting cards in the past and have decided it's time to share my view of the world online. Thank-you for taking the time to take a peek! I hope there is something in my collection that you might enjoy hanging in your home or business.
