Bruce Elmer Ruehl (1944-2019)
He loved to explore the beauty of the Southwest on his motorcycle, riding locally and cross country, where he gained inspiration for his artwork. A lifelong artist with immense creativity, his passions included painting and wood turning. He belonged to numerous local artist guilds including California Plein Air Painters, Fallbrook Art Center – Artist Guild, Oceanside Museum of Art – Artist Alliance, and the San Dieguito Artist Guild. In his self-written artist’s statement, he describes his inspiration: "Strongly attracted by the brilliant influences of nature, I am compelled to paint the space between realism and abstraction, expressing visions firmly etched in my life’s memories and experiences. My desire as an artist is to capture the way memory blurs and distills detail, and express the remaining essence and simplicity of the subject. The result invites the viewer to absorb, respond, and be transported not solely by my work, but also in concert with the recall of their own experiences and memory".
