Len Rusin won the 2010 Colorado Wildlife Habitat Stamp where his elk oil painting “Quick Drink” was reproduced in print, stamp and medallion form. He has been painting wildlife originally in acrylic and now in oils where his paintings are in many private collections across America. His success has made him the artist in residence in Acadia National Park in 2007 and the Grand Canyon National Park in 2008 and in 2009 turned down the residency in Rocky Mountain National park due to a conflict with his show schedule. He’s a signature member of the Artists for Conservation, and the International Guild of Realism. He has had work in Paint Americas Tours, Salon International and has been the featured artist at several shows in the Northeast. The Bennington Arts Center in Vermont has one of his paintings in its permanent collection.
