Born in 1955, Bob Ransley is a native of Troy, New York. Spending his early years on a farm, he was no stranger to hard work. That hard work ethic was reinforced as Bob and his brothers took their expected places in the family boat business.
Bob’s formal art training began at the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Later he attained a degree in Art Education from the University of Massachusetts. He insists however, “I wasn’t born with this talent. I work hard every day to be a better painter.”
Training, talent and hard paid off. Bob’s unique style has a flair of its own. It’s obvious he is having a good time with his palette knife. He rarely lacks enthusiasm and it shows in his work. There is a confidence exuded in the technique of every piece-Bob admits, “Humility is not my long suit-I think every painting I start is going to be the best one ever painted.”
You can find the Ransley signature on just about every subject matter. He known for his whimsical animal oil paintings but also creates still lifes, floral paintings and is in great demand as a portrait artist. He especially loves painting old Turkish olive oil jugs. Whether filled with flowers or set amongst pears, vases, bowls.
Most people think they get a glimpse of an artist’s personality in a painting. Bob admits, “The most important way for me to learn about me is to paint. I feel what I see. Success for me is getting that feeling on canvas so the viewer can feel it too.
The modern artist only creates one-of-a-kind original paintings. All of the art work is gallery wrapped, so they can be hung immediately and do not require a frame. Ransley creates many commission pieces. You can pick out your favorite animal and background color to have a masterpiece created just for your space.
