Jerry Ruthven's roots are in Central Texas. Here, he has spent a life time walking dry creek beds and following abandoned fencelines. Like the early American landscape painters whose work he admires, this fifth generation Texan takes great pride in the region's natural beauty. His painterly work captures on canvas the peaceful solitude and seasonal hues of the Texas Hill country. Mr. Ruthven is widely collected, and major works highlight the corporate collections of The Terrace (South MoPac, Austin) and Heritage Title Company (Frost Bank Tower, Austin)
