Hello, I'm Ruth Farquhar, welcome to my Gallery website. I am an artist and the owner of The Blue Easel Gallery in Edinburgh. This first picture above shows me at my desk, in my studio within The Blue Easel Gallery. I can see out into my garden through the window behind me, it's also where my family delivers hot cups of tea to me when I'm working. It doesn't normally look this tidy when I'm painting! The Gallery is situated in Cramond Village, a picturesque spot on the outskirts of Edinburgh. I'm lucky enough to work and live here with my family and our irish terrier (aka Gallery dog). I would be delighted to show you round the gallery and my studio, please pop in if you're in the area. I am excited to have launched a new online shop, I hope you will have time to have a look and see if there is anything you think might make you or a friend happy, or fit nicely into your home.

MY LATEST SERIES OF WORK I have been working on a series of new paintings during lockdown which have recently been launched on the website online shop. The inspiration for this new body of work has come from many long dog walks with gallery dog, the flowers I discovered on these walks, my own garden and a collection of beautiful vintage tea cups that had belonged to my Mother-In-Law. You can see video examples of how these new paintings were created on my instagram page @farquhar.ruth
Please check the online shop section on the website for details of all my paintings that are currectly available to purchase
I will always have a limited number of small original abstract paintings available to purchase, examples of these are shown below. These paintings are an important part of my studio practice and help me to explore new possibilities with colour, texture and composition.
