John Ringen Description

John was President of NWWS in 1964–1965, and has fifty years of impressive credentials; teaching numerous classes and workshops at college and adult levels, commercial illustrating, and judging a variety of festivals, exhibitions and open shows primarily throughout the Northwest. He has an enviable list of exhibition awards.

John and his wife of 43 years, Vicky, spend half their time each year in their motor home traveling to Yellowstone, the Tetons, and up and down the coast, visiting some of the finer wineries (he has quite a fine collection of wine). When home, he paints every day; at least 4 hours or more in his fantastic studio/gallery which is separate from his house. That way he “doesn’t have to clean up all the time.”

John attended the University of Washington on an athletic scholarship though he “wasn’t much for athletics.” After marrying Vicky, he joined Boeing when children came into their world. His strong inspiration to pursue art was fueled by two things: the only thing he ever got an A on in school was art, and his uncle, a commercial artist, always supplied him with whatever art materials he needed.

John works on up to fourteen paintings at once. He loves to paint anything that has to do with Northwest scenery and landscapes. His loose, impressionistic painting style has earned him frequent accolades and awards.

Regarding himself as an artist who records his visual impressions and feelings, he is a “reaction painter.” John enthusiastically proclaims that there is nothing quite as exciting, challenging and rewarding as attacking a crisp white sheet of watercolor paper.
