Wisconsin artist, Cathryn Ruvalcaba creates images of classic midwestern farm scenes by zooming in on the animals that populate these fields. Her use of oil paint on gesso board offers a realist lens of these subjects. While her style nears photo realism, there is an added level of playfulness that sets her work apart. The bright, almost neon brush strokes that accent the scene bring out the life that exists within what a Wisconsin native would otherwise see as mundane. She personifies the animals she creates, making her subjects seem almost fantastical. Yet the familiarity of the species she paints roots these animals in reality. "Morning Stroll" captures two hens walking together at dawn. Its as if its a daily routine for these two as they welcome the day together.
