Since his retirement from banking in 2007, Russ Schofield has devoted his time to oil painting. Russ has been interested in and practicing art most of his life, experimenting since childhood with several mediums including oil, watercolor, etching and wood sculpture. In the past, he produced illustrations professionally for government agencies, trade associations and businesses, but his work now is purely a creative endeavor. 
Over the past several years Russ has built a large portfolio of landscapes and seascapes that capture complex shifts in mood that changing weather creates. Using a variety of tools, he combines his instinctual appreciation of light and subtle color with his evolving understanding of shadow and form. Russ paints a variety of large-scale landscapes based on his travels on the East and West coasts, in Cape Cod, Eastern Maryland, New York, and California. Personally, he prefers figurative studies and portraits, an interest he pursues mainly through commissions and studio classes. 
Russ has recently exhibited work at the Yellow Barn Gallery, the S. Dillon Ripley Gallery (A Smithsonian Institution), and is permanently shown at Gallery 322 in Maryland. In 2012 he was invited and gave a presentation of his work to the staff and students of the Robert College in Istanbul, Turkey. He also regularly participates in competitions and shows in the DC, Maryland and Virginia region.
