I was born and raised in Eastern West Virginia. I went to art school and took classes to become an artist. My classes were at the University of New Mexico. Later after we moved from New Mexico back to Texas I took more classes to further my education in art. I studied with Professional artist Joseph (Jerry) Yarnell with Jerry Yarnell School of Fine Art for many years. I studied his books and art instruction on PBS for many years. I studied with Professional artist Quinten Gregory with his tapes and books and took several art workshops while I was still learning more about art.
The love I have for nature and capturing its colors and textures on canvas is a challenge I love to tackle. The passion I have for painting is evident in the finished product. I feel I have succeeded if the viewer is able to connect with my painting and can view it with a pure sense of appreciation, calm, contentment and perhaps a little longing to be part of the scene depicted.
The inspiration I get from the subjects I choose allows me to create beauty, simplicity, and serentiy in this changing world through my paintings. The subjects I choose are inspired by God, and nature. I always enjoy color and how one color relates to another on the color wheel.
I enjoy being an artist because painting is an all encompassing personal experience as well as a source of communication. Art is painting not just what you see, but what you know and feel about the subject that you are visualizing at the time.
I do commissioned artworks and you can reach me at email@example.com or through my website at www.RuthHousley.com or www.Ruth-Housley.artistwebsites.com
