Cattlemens Western Art Show and Sale
Ron D. Moore

Ron was born in 1942 in Oklahoma of Indian heritage. He is a tribal member by blood of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and his Grandfather and Great Grandfather are original enrollees on the turn of the century rolls.
When a young boy Ron's family moved to the Rocky Mountains and Ron has spent his life putting horse tracks in just about all the Western States as a guide and outfitter, cowboy, and rancher.

He can't remember art not being a part of his life. When
a child there was no television and the radio only worked ball the time so his father, a gifted artist, would furnish the evening's entertainment by sitting at the kitchen table drawing cowboys and Indians for his two sons. Ron try's to depict the West as be knows it to be through a lifelong experience riding the same trails and canyons where it took place. He feels like it adds authenticity to his paintings.

Three years ago Ron sold his ranch, retaining a life estate on it, and paints full time now. A good friend and neighbor bought the ranch so Ron can slay involved with the cattle, and most importantly keep a little cow----- on his boots so as to stay grounded lo his way of life.

Ron has been invited to, and attended. a lot of the major shows and has art in collections throughout the United States and in Belgium, South Africa, and Ireland. Some people of note who own his art are President George W. Bush, Dallas Cowboys great Drew Pearson, and country singer Bill Joe Royal. Like his brother Gary, Ron attributes what talent he has lo heredity. Completely self-taught, Ron has never attended an art class or workshop. However he admits to being a museum junkie where he spends a lot of lime studying the greats, Charlie Russell, Remington and Frank Tenny Johnson, painters he greatly admires.
