Lincoln resident Ruth Ann Hendrickson has been painting since she was 14. She studied at the DeCordova Museum School and extensively with the painter Marjorie Glick.

Her works show a luminosity that is calming. Her scenes evoke the ideal of place, while her people are captured in home settings.  She is also well-known for her depictions of various flora.

She says of her work: I am constantly transfixed by the beauty of the world. The way the light flows around and across an object, sudden glowing light from back reflections, the wash of color across a dawn or evening sky, the mosaic of colors in the bark of a tree, the way sunlight filters through backlit hair or stained glass leaves….I especially love layering with transparent paints, creating that special color that defies a name.
