Orange County Artist Ernie Jones Launches New Website

Mr. Jones is also a member of the Orange County Fine Arts Association and exhibits some of his paintings at the Showcase Gallery in South Coast Village located at Sunflower and Bear Streets in Santa Ana, California.

"I have been producing art for others all my life, and now I'm moving away from hobby and into the world of professional art. I favor oils and acrylics, and like using strong, rich colors in my work," said Ernie Jones, Artist. "Currently my focus is on Orange County -- and Newport Beach in particular.
