Ruth Housley Fine Art and Photography
I have been doing photography since I was young and as a family we took trips and I always like to photograph subjects and nature and to be outdoors seeing all of God's beautiful creation. Photography is an art too as well as oil painting and you can see all around you something that is art to take a picture of and its beauty.
I did paintings in Oil and enjoyed it very much but I got tired of being inside and doing the paintings. I did all of my oil paintings in my home (studio) but now I like doing photography more and being in the great outdoors. Hope you enjoy all that you see and my paintings are still for sale in my galleries.
I was born and raised in Eastern West Virginia. I went to art school and took classes to become an artist 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. I studied with Professional artist Quinten Gregory with his tapes and books.
The love I have for nature and capturing its colors and textures on canvas is a challenge I love to tackle and the passion I have for painting is evident in the finished product. Painting is an all encompassing personal experience as well as source of communication. Painting is not what you see, but what you know and feel about the subject that you are visualizing at the time.
