Solitude - Ruth Andre

I am a fan of quiet and solitude. I love people and love being chatty as anyone that knows me knows first hand.  I also love to find a quiet place and solitude. I guess the quiet time is a privilege of sorts,  an added bonus to having good friends and a loving family. The painting today was painted
 on and outing with my friend, Julie Trail, at a local winery in the Shenandoah Valley. 
We hiked along a vineyard trail to find this quite little pond. 
Painting along the pond shore made for, "A Painting Day".

"Solitude" 6x8 inches, oil on canvas by Ruth Andre

Une peinture qui traduit bien la solitude mais le côté positif du mot...
Des très douces couleurs...
Gros bisous

Ruth, I just love this -- the paint quality, the palette, the simplicity...and your words as well.
