We’re all on a journey, but most of us would be apprehensive to show the world what it’s taken to get where we are today. This is not the case for Ronal Boone.
Ronal’s upcoming art show, “The Journey” promises to be an emotionally-driven, intimate look into what’s made him the man he is today.
His journey so far has spanned geography (from Virginia, to Texas, to Nebraska) as well as emotions in the forms of love, joy, sadness, and loss. We’ll no doubt feel the influences of such events as his cross-country moves, to his love for his son and wife, and such tragic events as the loss of his daughter and beloved art teacher within two days of one another.
This journey is mostly told through the medium of acrylic, spray paint, and drawing, but an accompanying self-made documentary promises to bring us deeper understanding of his world – and as he hopes, greater understanding of ourselves.
Ronal feels that we’re all on this life journey together, and he wants people to learn from his experiences – both good and bad – as a way to help themselves grow and become more comfortable in their own skin. His candor and openness about himself makes “The Journey” that much more impactful.
As Ronal himself put it best, “At the end of the day, we all share the same size grave.”
