OLD naive oil painting RUTH PARKER- $49
Drawn simply from the painting she left behind, I have a clear understanding of Ruth H. Parker and the life she led. It is all speculative, imaginary if you will, but paintings such as this one, straightforward, born of self-expression, and a heapin’ helpin’ of naiveté, are open invitations to conjecture.
Ruth loved cats, dogs, flower gardening, and children – not necessarily in that order. She knitted, crocheted, and kept her home spotless, even after her husband of fifty-five years, Ned, passed away unexpectedly ten years before the day she decided to “paint.”
