"Happy Birthday Ruth Farmer"

oil on 10x12" panel.
I got the honor of not only meeting Ruth Farmer last Sunday but being commissioned to paint her portrait. Saturday is Ruth's birthday, she'll be 97 years young, still driving her car and walking without a cane, we talked and talked about art, politics, family and life in Eureka during the depression, her sense of humor was refreshing. It's not everyday you meet a person like Ruth and when you do, it gives you an uncommon perspective and joyful inspiration..
