Of the new piece, Ronnie said: ”Welcome to my latest work, Welcome; a real insight into a different side of the Rolling Stones. As a buyer of one of these very limited prints, you’ll receive yours personalised to YOU, from me, personally.”
Prints of Ronnie’s work can be pre-ordered now and some lucky fans will be able to have their very own personalised edition of the print.
“I’ve passed by it many times and have always been intrigued by what it’s like inside and the story of the place. I’ve recreated Ashridge in many of my paintings over the years, so to finally go inside and explore such a historic and fascinating place and have the opportunity to show my work there is a really special moment. I hope visitors will come in August and enjoy the art in these breath-taking surroundings.”
