Gary Ruuska Paintings and Drawings
This website features acrylic paintings completed between 2009 and the present along with some of the many colored pencil works I have done since 2006. Also included are a few graphite drawings and ink drawings.
Currently, I am giving the colored pencils a rest while I devote all of my energy to acrylic painting.
I have always been an outdoors person, spending a lot of time hiking around on local trails. Occasionally, I travel to see what else nature has to offer. The latest acrylic paintings are an expression of my fondness for the outdoors and the eternal beauty of nature.
The tree in this painting lives and grows in the Castro Valley of California, near the banks of Lake Chabot.
