High Country Solitude

"High Country Solitude" by Scott Ruthven
11"x14" Oil on Canvas

This quiet, contemplative scene looks wonderful in its gold leaf frame.  It reminds me of wonderful times hiking in the Rocky Mountain backcountry.

Here are some close up shots to show some of the detail:

"New Beginning" by Scott Ruthven
9"x12" Oil on Linen Panel

Spring is here!  This painting celebrates the miracle of life with the new vibrant green grasses peeking up through the soil to supplant the old, and the arrival of baby lambs.

Foothills Sunset

"Foothills Sunset" by Scott Ruthven
5"x7" Oil on panel - Varnished

These are the foothills west of Fort Collins, Colorado.  I painted this on site as the sun was going down.  I love the warm orange light striking the back of the hills and glowing on the trees and shrubs at the top edges contrasted against the cool blues and purples at the base of the foothills.
