Ronco Ortiz childhood was very fun and colorful. His father and mother instilled in him the importance of being and living in the moment of being a child. I played every day, went to the park, played with my friends, did crafts, impersonated characters, ran a skateboard, and was always doing something. In those days there were no cell phones, what you did was play until you couldn't. Those were the times!
You see, this is why I like to paint like a child. Pablo Picasso once said, every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up. I watch a lot the way children paint. It is not easy to paint like a child. As he grows older, his mind fills with so many things that being a child again, even for a moment, becomes an odyssey. When a child paints, he does not care whether one stroke is good or bad, or whether one color is duller than another. The child only paints, he is only who he is. That is the beauty that I try to achieve when I imitate how a child paints. It brings me back to my good old days.
Note: We like to leave the white edges on the canvas to preserve the integrity of the artwork. With this option you can frame the painting or cover the edges with black tape as is often done in art galleries.
