Oil Paintings from Early Years as an Artist. Down at the Creek, and Remote Creek.

Left painting in oil, “Down at the Creek” an oil painting by Ruby J Craft. We were in our present home when I did this one summer. I would wear my swimsuit to paint in at times, because I wanted to remember the water.

Right, “Remote Creek”, done with a, pallet, knife, and brushes in oil, paint. I stood outside in the sun to paint this one for my father, and mother for their anniversary. I finished in one, or two, days, but I spent many hours on it. I have kept this one, since Mom, and Dad gave it back. Smile. These are earlier paintings, especially the one on the right.
