Peter Ruta painted in Chiapas from 1973-78, outdoors in meadows and woodlands, indoors on rainy days. Here is a small sample of the work, now forty years old. In his last recorded interview he told the questioner, “It takes forty years for the paint to dry,” meaning it takes that long for the public and indeed for the artist, to see what he has done.(see paintings above)
