"Away With The Faeries" By Ruth Calder Murphy (Arciemme)
This picture is called "Away with the Faeries". I painted it in 2012. I love the way the light falls across the picture - it reminds me of Summer. That's why I chose it to be the main picture on this site.
"KickingLeaves"ByRuth Calder Murphy(Aricemme)
This painting is called "Kicking Leaves". It's a portrait of my daughter, Esther Grace, in the Autumn woods, kicking the fallen leaves. I painted this one in 2011.
"The Owl and the Moon" By Ruth Calder Murphy (Arciemme)
I love owls - especially barn owls. I also love moonlight and the combination is magical!
This is a small painting I did just before Christmas in 2013. It reminds me of watching owls when I was a little girl and hearing them hoot in the trees outside when I was going to sleep.
All Wrapped Up - By Ruth Calder Muprhy (Arciemme)
This is a fun portrait of my three children, all wrapped up for Winter! I painted it in 2012.
"Fire!" - By Ruth Calder Murphy (Arciemme)
This is a painting I did for my little boy, Joel. The original is quite big and is hanging on his bedroom wall.
