Four vibrant Ron Burns' animal prints - two cats, Tiger and Squirt, and two dogs, Toby and Bear. Make a beautiful framed set for a child's room, or any modern setting which needs a pop of colour. Some storage damage, but minimal.

Ron Burns’ original work is in high demand.
— Forbes magazine writes, “Burns’ style has become extremely collectible.”
— “Ron Burns’ canvasses of in-your-face dogs and cats drenched in Day-Glo colors are hot sellers,” reports San Francisco Chronicle.
— Sky magazine calls his style “eye-popping, irresistible … Andy Warhol meets Matisse”.

“There’s nothing subtle or muted about a pet’s love, especially — especially — a dog’s,” says Ron. “It’s full-strength, heart-felt and wild-as-the-wind. So the green-apple colors, the fire-truck reds, the swimming-pool blues really chose themselves. Brilliant, saturated colors are the only ways I can begin to capture what each of us experiences with the dogs and cats that nurture us.”

Ron Burns begins each portrait with the eyes. “Their eyes hold nothing back, whether it’s love or fear, heartbreak or admiration. Every portrait begins with the eyes — they have to — because from there all the life and personality radiates outward,” he says.

After Ron’s initial series of paintings of his own “kids,” he started visiting animal shelters and taking photos of other dogs and cats to use as models. After selling portraits of these images, he returned a percentage of proceeds back to support the shelters. This approach later lead to being named artist-in-residence with The Humane Society of the United States.

After 9/11 Ron was moved by the story of the explosive detection dog Sirius who lost his life in Tower II and got to know the handlers, dogs and their stories, meeting Sky, the first dog to enter the Pentagon, Nero and other rescue dogs who looked for survivors in the rubble.
