Hello everyone, welcome to my online world!
My name is Ruby Allan and I am an artist living in Fredericton, New Brunswick. I am a mother of 3 beautiful daughters and a wife to one wonderful husband. Painting has always been my passion, I am particularily inspired by people, nature and the small moments in life that usually go unnoticed.
I hope you enjoy browsing my site, thank you for stopping by!
I’ve got a lot of love in my art
Let’s face it! I am not good at updating my Blog. Confession of an artist.. Here are some of my newest. All have been done using Coloured Pencil except for the Flowers, Plein Air done in Oils… So as you can see I have been busy…
Its been awhile. ! I’m still painting and still creating new ideas. Getting ready for the women’s show here in Fredericton, NB. April 30-May 1, 2016 at the Richard Currie Centre. My newest work features faces on canvas bags… All with a story to tell from their reflective glasses.
New Years resolution ! Start posting on my blog. I have been busy painting and not posting . Since last New Years I have practised with my coloured pencils. My goal was achieved and I have done some commissions and entered 2 large pieces in the fredericton Society of artist’s fall show. I am quite pleased with my effort. For Christmas I received the ultimate. 36 faber castell polychromas. Sure brought me back to when I was a child and so excited to get a new box of crayons … Whatever keeps us young at heart then we shall never grow old.
2014 promises to be a great year starting off with the Beaverbrook Art Gallery Members show on January 23, 2014 . I have 2 paintings – one of my Mosaic – where I cut up 10 of my paintings in 1/2 inch square… the 2nd painting none other than the statue of the Lord Beaverbrook himself showing the Lighthouse downtown FrederictonWith the beginning of a new year comes NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS! My resolution is to think outside the box, get the Prismacolours out and master the Art of Coloured Pencils. This art form can be quite striking taking on the form of an oil painting / watercolour or pastels… I think I’ve contemplated this before, but this time I’m ready, got the books, the work station, got all the tools…. Here I go!
