Ruth DeWilde-Major Paintings


This web site exhibits most of the paintings I have done to date, arranged in five portfolios representing each of the five genres I paint in: Portraits of Animals and People, Land and Seascapes, Historical Paintings, Still Life and Flowers, Spiritual and Fantasy and Drawing and Illustration. The last paintings in each portfolio are the newest.

My historical painting "William's Street, John's Towne, Winter, 1772/3" is still touring public buildings in Johnstown, NY, while portraits of Lafayette, his spy James Lafayette, and Frederick Douglass are on loan through June to Illinois College. Historical paintings related to Plymouth pilgrims are owned and exhibited at the Jabez Howland House in Plymouth, MA, and four historical scenes and portraits related to Sir William Johnson's life may be seen Fort Johnson in Amsterdam, NY.

Vineyard land, sea and farm-scapes are exhibited and available for sale at Cottage Haven Interiors in Vineyard Haven, MA. Portraits of Nancy Luce were exhibited recently at the Martha's Vineyard Museum and one painting of Nancy outside her home with her cow and hens is currently in a traveleing exhibit sponsored by the Vineyard Museum. My paintings of flowers will be included in Featherstone Center for the Arts' show, "The art of Flowers" which opens May 10, 4:00-6:00 PM and closes May 27th.
