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.

2014 began with an unveiling New Year's Eve of my historical painting "William's Street, John's Towne, Winter, 1772/3" at the Johnstown, NY Courthouse. The painting is currently touring the city - Johnstown Library, City Hall, Court House, Wells Nursing Home, Vintage Cafe, Johnstown's five banks and the Johnstown Public Schools.

Currently, my Vineyard land, sea and farm-scapes are exhibited and available at Cottage Haven Interiors in Vineyard Haven, MA. My oil portrait of Frederick Douglass was exhibited at the Edgartown Library and Friend's presentation of Readings on July 2nd of Douglass' speech, "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?" at the Federated Church where Douglass spoke in 1857. The portrait of Douglass will also be exhibited at the Edgartown Library July 7-17. Portraits of General Lafayette, James Lafayette and Frederick Douglass will be exhibited for the 2014-15 academic year at the Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL where they will be integrated into their curriculum focus on Justice.
