Ruth Harris

| Impressionistic Oil Painter

                                                                                                                                                       passion for painting landscapes comes from her love of the outdoors and the inspiration she receives from visiting pristine locations.  She feels blessed to have been born and reared on an Oklahoma farm and has been close to nature her entire life.  Her paintings are reminders of places that have touched her, and her hope is that viewers will share in the emotions she expresses about those places.

 

As a child she loved to draw, but pursued a degree in Business Education.  Her career and marriage with family responsibilities postponed her serious study of art until later in life when she began taking art classes at a local college.  She has continued to hone her skills through participation in many workshops by nationally-known artists and through self study.

 

As well as exhibiting her works locally, her paintings have been accepted into juried national and international competitions, earning numerous awards and acquired by both private and corporate collectors.

 

She enjoys painting “en plein aire”, allowing her to see true colors, values, and the mood of a subject.  Field studies are completed later in her studio or used as a reference for larger pieces.  When not painting outdoors, she paints in her studio using her own photos.

 

She paints in oils in an impressionistic style and often will include figures or animals in her work.  The landscape is her favorite subject, but she also enjoys painting skyscapes, street scenes, and still life.
