I define art as doing what ever you do the best you can. I believe the goal of art is to raise the consciousness of our planet, the stimulus art provides opens our senses helping us to become aware. Awareness is the path to enlightment. Enlightment is the path to love. Now we are friends.
I was born in a river house in cin. Ohio 1949 to Louis and Nannie Ruder. At the age of 8 we moved to London ky. When I starting drawing the images that I was studying under the microscope?
At Eastern KY University I studied art. Steward Carlson one of my painting instructors encouraged me to go to Chicago, were I did independent studies in painting. I have painted to earn my living my entire life. I don’t sing.
