Original Artwork to Celebrate CWF XX by Ron Burns
Ron started an art movement over 20 years ago by painting cats and dogs in his very unique style. Mixing realism with pop and abstraction. His painting of Sirius, the bomb-detection dog that died in Tower II on 9/11 is in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum’s permanent collection.
To date Ron has appeared in or on CNN, Headline News, Extreme MakeOver Home Edition, Fox New, PBS, FORBES Magazine, New York Daily News, People, InStyle, and the San Francisco Chronicle… The two stories done for FOX News have each won an EMMY.
