Ruth Farmer by Rachel K Schlueter

Oil on 8x10" masonite panel.
Ruth Farmer is a new friend that I met through her daughter Jill Farmer who commissioned me to paint her mother's portrait for Ruth's 97th birthday. This is the second portrait of Ruth Farmer I've painted, here she is quite bit younger than in the first portrait .


  1. What a beautiful portrait, Rachel!

  2. So beautiful and graceful. What strong presence! Your color choices
    resurrect her youth and vitality.

    sincerely, Terry and Jim

  3. Thank you all for your comments, I enjoyed reading them!
