Artworks by Ruth Manning

I am interested in the Northern European myths and legends of my forebears, and their journeys, across vast oceans, to these shores which we call home.
I see the universal myth in the world all around me.
Recent tours of Scotland, Ireland, England have renewed my interest in our N.Z. landscape
Most of my painting has been from sketches made in the field, combining these with figure studies.
Being also interested in Genealogy and family research, I am interested in the areas my forebears lived in, and the tools and machines that were available at the time they lived.
