Summer Sky - Ruth Andre

Summer brings so many good things to life. The garden is flourishing, the shade of the trees is so inviting and the sky is a gorgeous blue. The daytime temperatures are high making working outside a challenge. Summer will always be a favorite time of year. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Walk Back - Ruth Andre

"Walk Series Painting"
10"x50"x1.5" oil & mixed media on cradled birch panel
by Ruth Andre

"Walk Back" is one of a series of Five"Walk-Series" paintings. Each painting is 10"x10"x1.5" oil & mixed media on a birch wood panel. Each painting works well on its own but I love seeing them all together. They could liven up a quiet hallway, make dining just a little bit more fun hung over the sideboard. They would also look gorgeous in a bedroom setting. The "Walk" paintings have given me a new painting freedom. The graphic paint strokes give way to a new direction in my work and one that I plan to follow. It has been "A Painting Day".

Over There- Ruth Andre


"Over There"
10"x10"x1.5" oil & mixed media on panel
by Ruth Andre

I am feeling skittish lately. My neighbors have reported finding a rattlesnake near their home. The valley where I live currently has more wildlife than people and there are mice and squirrels so it is great feeding area for snakes. I find myself looking about when I walk to my studio, feed the horses, walk around in the barn. I don't want to be surprised by a snake especially a rattlesnake. So today the painting title is "Over There" because I am constantly looking Over There making sure all is snake free. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Many Moons Ago - Ruth Andre


"Many Moons Ago"
10"x10"x1.5" Oil & Mixed Media on Panel
by Ruth Andre

This morning I called a good friend that started talking about one of her good friends. She said my friend is older and I said I think you are about the same age. Then my friends said, oh my gosh you are right. We often do not see ourselves as others see us and that just might be a good thing. We can move along in a total blissful state being what we want to be. The painting, "Many Moons Ago" shows the passage of time with each textured ridge making its own path. It has been, "A Painting Day".
