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!
There never seems to be a bad view in Yosemite! With every scenic drive or winding path you take the views are constantly changing as the position of the trees and the reflections in the river offer new and breathtaking scenes to capture. Additionally, the momentary changes in lighting from the soft early morning light to the vivid setting sun brings the scenery to life. However, nothing really transforms the scenery as much as the dramatic and awe inspiring effect of the seasons. The seasons truly have a way of visually transforming this beautiful valley like nothing else, and it is this annual effect that I felt compelled to capture.
I am so happy to announce that I have completed my newest painting! Serene Half Dome is the 3rd painting in my Yosemite Park Series and will bear the Roycroft mark on its’ certificate of authenticity. Check with your nearest dealer, as well as this website, for the availability of this beautifully framed giclée print.
In talking with customers and retailers, there was a desire for more sizing options to fit an individual's unique needs. As a result, I am now offering all prints with the option of four sizes; Medium, Large and Extra-Large and now Extra-Extra-Large. I trust customers will be able to find a print size that will fit into that special location in their home or office.
"WOW, my dad surprised us with a wedding gift of Radiant Yosemite Valley and we absolutely loved it. I immediately made my husband hang it up above our fireplace, where it looks truly spectacular! Just WOW!"

Thank you for sharing a photo of my artwork so prominently displayed above the fireplace in your home. I love receiving these snapshots and sharing them with my viewers.
I am honored that my work was chosen to be an expression of love from a father to his daughter to commemorate her marriage. It is truly rewarding to see others enjoying the work that I have poured my myself into creating.
