Canyon Shadows - Ruth Andre

Painting small studies gives so much information as far as color and design but when moving up in size the tools change to a larger size and there is more paint to mix. The mixing area on my palette has grown and I need ever inch of it. The painting today, "Cloud Shadows" is not huge by any means but to paint this piece it took a whole new way of moving the paint. I love challenges and I look forward to each canvas no matter the size,  making for, "A Painting Day".

Your abstraction holds a lot of appeal for me, Ruth. I also play with the paint surface to achieve what I 'feel' as I am seeing. The colors in this really do say canyons to me.
