I am here to announce that I have completed my newest painting Rugged Grand Tetons! This is the 2nd painting in my National Parks Series and bears the Roycroft mark on its’ certificate of authenticity. Visit my online store on this website or check with your nearest dealer, for the availability of this beautifully framed giclée print.
“We're so proud to have this print in our home. Yosemite is a very special place for us and when I came upon this image while researching Craftsman artwork, my jaw dropped. Of all the art we saw from all over the world on the internet, that one perfect image we found just happened to have been created by such an incredibly talented LOCAL artist who also happens to be an incredibly NICE guy! Every single person who has viewed your print has commented on its power and beauty. Thank you for sharing your gifts with this world, especially here in our dining room.”

It has been a joy to get to meet and talk with you. I am glad I was able to accommodate your needs and sign your print for you. I hope you enjoy it for years to come.
"Keith’s beautiful artwork hangs in a place of honor. Friends and family across the country and around the world come through our home. We’ve been looking for something special that will give a sense of home away from home, grounded in the California stories we care about. Thank you for the quality of your work and the investment you’ve made in developing your natural gifts. We love your expression of the California we love!"
- Diane C., customer
Thank you for sharing all your fun stories. It was a real joy to meet you both. Hope to see you again some time.
I want to thank everyone for coming out to see my art show at the Bungalow Heaven Home Tour. It was such a nice, cool, overcast day to be set up on the porch of this beautiful craftsman home. I always love these opportunities to meet new people and am even more delighted to see the familiar faces that return to say hello again. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to come out and take artwork home! Hope to see you at my next show.
“Our family visited one of Keith’s art shows and purchased Blossoming Spring Meadow. We have it proudly on display at the top of our staircase, and it looks amazing. The background sky is so realistic, and as you look around the foreground the detail is just amazing. In person, Keith is amazingly outgoing and very encouraging. His artwork inspires me. If you are planning to purchase a beautiful painting from Keith Rust, I promise you won't regret it.”
- Joanna K., customer
I always love the opportunity to meet with people who enjoy my work and art in general. I am grateful for your kind words and that you took the time to send me a photo. I look forward to seeing you again at one of my upcoming shows.
I have recently begun working on my next painting, Rugged Grand Tetons! After finishing the drawing layout, I completed the sky and am now working on the mountains. I have been excited to paint this image for quite awhile and am loving how it is coming together so far. I have a ways to go, but it is coming along faster than l expected. Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram to see some additional work in progress photos. This will be the second painting in my National Park series. When completed, it will be available in four sizes.
This past year was an extremely busy and exciting year for me. I was asked to apply to the Roycroft Association and after applying was accepted. I was honored to be interviewed for the RALA Winter 2019 newsletter. I began taking my artwork to art shows and was overwhelmed by the response and success I experienced. I have had the privilege of meeting so many incredibly nice, complementary people. I completed my favorite series, a group of 4 seasonal paintings based in Yosemite. It has been exciting to see how the interest in my work has grown exponentially.
Coming up, I have another show where I will be selling my work in person. You can come see me at the 30th Annual Bungalow Heaven Home Tour in Pasadena on April 28th. I will be at 986 N Michigan Avenue, Pasadena, California between 10 AM and 4 PM. I look forward to seeing you.
I have also recently begun my next painting, Rugged Grand Tetons.
I am excited to announce that I have been invited to exhibit at the 30th Annual Bungalow Heaven Home Tour next month in beautiful Pasadena, California. The show is being held in the historic Bungalow Heaven Landmark District, and I will be selling my work on the front porch at 986 N Michigan Avenue, Pasadena, California. Please join me on April 28, 2019 where you will be able to see my work in person. If you saw me at a previous show and would like something specific, please let me know as soon as possible so I can bring it with me.

Come and spend the day strolling down tree-lined streets, viewing historic homes and munching on homemade cookies. This cozy neighborhood is home to hundreds of Craftsman homes constructed between 1905 and 1925. The Arts & Crafts architecture reflected a movement away from the ornate Victorian style to simpler structures in harmony with nature. Materials such as river rock and redwood shingles were commonly used in constructing these unique homes, which typically include front porches, wide windows and interior details of wood, tile and glass.
The annual Home Tour invites visitors into 8 homes to enjoy docent-led commentaries about the home’s architectural details and history. Located off Orange Grove Blvd. just east of N. Lake Ave.
You are now able to find my work available for purchase at The Schoolhouse Gallery in East Aurura, New York. The Roycroft Artisans' Schoolhouse Gallery is a co-op storefront where you can peruse and shop extraordinary works by juried Roycroft Artisans.
Housed in a Circa 1950 Schoolhouse, the School House Gallery and adjacent woodworking studios provide you with a unique opportunity to see and purchase the work of Roycroft Artisans who have created their wares in the Craftsman style using traditional techniques and methods. Following the Roycroft philosophy of making artwork “the very best we can,” work in the gallery reflects a dedication to craft, respect for materials and love for the work created by the skilled artisans.
I hope you can visit and experience the Schoolhouse Gallery to see all the variety of of well crafted work.
It is so much fun getting to spend time and catch up with these incredible people and amazingly talented artists! Beyond the enjoyment of exhibiting my own work at the 32nd National Arts & Crafts Conference, I love that I get to enjoy talking with artists who’s work I have admired for years. On top of that, they are so willing to offer their compliments and encouragement. Thanks to each of you for your generous friendship.
