Welcome to Ruth’s Images

The Artwork of E. Lynette Fransen

Lynette is a realistic artist who captures the personalities and unique characteristics of her subjects on canvas. Painting is her passion and she receives inspiration from life, people, relationships and her love for all of God’s creations. Lynette is a self-taught artist, who was born and raised in eastern South Dakota and has lived and painted in Wyoming since 1988. She specializes in the mediums of acrylic and pastel.

Ruth’s Images, her publishing company, was named and dedicated in memory of her mother Ruth Imogene, who died when Lynette was eight years old, and her father Art Daly, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 1992.

Some of Lynette’s well-known paintings can be found at Deselms Fine Art in Cheyenne, WY; Sportsman’s Warehouse and Floral Rhino in Casper, WY; Wyoming Trails Gallery in Wheatland, WY; Lake Hotel in Yellowstone National Park; and Sioux Gallery in Hill City, SD. She has received many awards and honors as well as participated in countless group and solo exhibitions as well as numerous fund-raisers.


Some artists paint for years, striving for that one painting that will catapult them over the “art” fence they have been straddling. Lynette didn’t just step over the fence, she leaped over it with this painting. (Double Take) Her detail of this amazing animal of the western plains is truly amazing.


Pam and I can’t begin to express how much we love both of our new prints! Settled In and Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep are even more spectacular “in person”.  We can’t wait to show them off!


I’m a huge fan of Lynette’s artwork! Not only do I buy her artwork for myself but have given several pieces as gifts. Also love her variety of note cards and send them on a regular basis. I love all her Christmas cards.

Thank you for the postcard informing me of your latest work.  You have outdone yourself – It is truly a wonderful painting – so real and beautifully portrayed. Bless you for your witness for the Lord through your work.  May it bring Him glory and praise.


I am SO EXCITED that I found your piece! My mom stayed in a cabin in Big Sky, MT two years ago and fell in love with “this artwork that was in the cabin that had animals in the Yellowstone bus”. She looked all over West Yellowstone for it to no avail. I have been searching online since the West Yellowstone trip and could not find anything close. I finally emailed the cabins asking if they knew of anything matching her description, they sent me a picture, and I was able to find it! She is going to be so surprised and thrilled!

The Larson painting is awesome Lynette. A picture IS worth a thousand words…I just keep looking at it thinking “What an amazing story you’ve told!!!”


Thank you, Lynette. The talent God has given you is remarkable. You have a talent only some can dream about. I absolutely love this picture of Murphy. He is adorable and looks so real like I could touch him and feel his softness of his fur.
Thank you again!
