Sage - Ruth Andre



There has been a lot going on with my life as of late, with little time for painting.  This has been the longest hiatus from the studio since I first started painting.  While away I never stopped thinking about my art or stopped seeing art all around me. The painting today is a cooperative view of two styles.  One being my more realistic brush paintings and one being my palette knife paintings.  I may tuck this one away and take a look at it in a day or two to see if this style is something I would like move forward with in the future making for "A Painting Day"?

"Sage" 8x6 inches, oil on canvas by Ruth Andre SOLD

A beautiful horse with a blue eye. Absolutely lovely.

I love your brush paintings with your layers of color, but I really like the texture on this, too ... I always look forward to seeing what you do next!

I like the thick texture and the movement in this piece. I hope you will do more.

Very romantic style, full of emotion. To me it tells a story, night is falling the wind is blowing and a lovely young horse looks into the wilderness and feels a call to run wild with the pack.
