After nearly four months of planning, designing, photographing and editing I am excited to announce that I have completed my first video. The idea of creating this movie began with a very good friend of mine repeatedly stating that we should make a video to capture the process of creating my paintings. After I finally agreed to the idea, Jonathon and I began talking about the concept which eventually morphed into an introductory video, showing the evolution from my early years to where I am now. I am so grateful and thankful for all of Jonathon’s time and efforts! Good friends are a true blessing in life. You can watch my video on my About page. I also now have a new Keith Rust Illustration YouTube page. I hope you enjoy!
Had another great visit and promising meeting in Yosemite last week. Unfortunately, the incredible views that Yosemite has to offer with the amazingly full waterfalls were greatly obscured by all the smoke from the nearby Mariposa fire. Even still, the beauty I observed on my hikes have me excited to complete some of my upcoming Yosemite landscape designs.
I recently returned from a relaxing and productive trip to explore the breathtaking beauty of the garden isle of Kauai. Every time I visit, I find new areas to explore and inspire creativity. After this latest visit, I have several images that I am thinking of laying out for future paintings. Having arrived home, I spent the past three days painting non-stop to complete my latest painting, Stunning Liberty Cap, set in the equally beautiful and captivating setting of the Yosemite Valley. I hope to have it photographed, printed and ready for shipping some time next week. Check back soon to see the finished painting!
