Winter Forest - Ruth Andre

I had a few of my paintings delivered to Park City, Utah today and it got me thinking about how special summers must be in the high mountain regions. Since it was over the top hot here in the valley today I decided to think about the winter season just a few months away and painted a forest of red pines. Don't run for your down parka quite yet but it was fun to cool down painting a forest of red, that made for, "A Painting Day".

Oh this is refreshing. I can handle a few more hot weeks but I hope cooler days are soon to come.

Wonderful energy of color and brushstroke.

I've been thinking about snowy scenes too lately! This is such a wonderful piece. I especially like the movement you've captured with that blended painting knife technique. Very fun.

This is such a great picture with wonderful contrast and energy, a very fresh and spontaneous work that's brilliantly expressive!
