"I'm always working toward mastering my drawing skills, interpreting values, and keeping my colors clean. Outside my studio, plein air painting is a passion where I take in the sights, sounds, and smells. I rise to the challenge of capturing that light and sense of place." One plein air admirer said of Ruth's art, "Anyone can paint a picture but not everyone can paint a painting."
