Now, in Ruth's own words... at bit about the artist,
|T-025 Classy Dills by Ruth Morrow watercolor 20x26 $500|
Ruth Morrow has spent the past 26 years painting and photographing the beauties of the Mother Lode. Ruth's loose and fanciful painting style is visible in her watercolor, acrylic, oil and mixed media pieces.
2011 - 12 have been busy and gratifying years in her artistic endeavors. At Sacramento Fine Arts Gallery Ruth was presented with an award for excellence for her watercolor "A Close-knit Village" and the Olive Schmid Memorial Award for her piece "Spring at the Old Homestead". She received multiple first awards at the 2012 Frog Jump Professional Art Show. "Spring at the Old Homestead" also received a second place at the October Mother Lode Art Show. In March she received a bronze plaque from the Windsor-Newton Company in New York for her excellence in watercolor.
Ruth was the first artist to win the Ironstone Obsession Theme Division poster contest twice with "A Romp in the Dills" and "Truckin Dills", both of which have sold out.
This year will be Ruth's 10th year of acceptance into the KVIE Art Auction.
