The Mix - Ruth Andre

We have now officially entered into the Holiday Season. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and shared quality time with family and friends. 
During my out of town visit over the holiday my son said he was looking at my website and mentioned how he had no concept as to how big or small my paintings were unless he checked the size and even then it was hard to imagine a 30x40 inch painting from the cropped photos. Today I decided to show two paintings in an interior environment. The paintings are abstract works but you will see how well they work in a traditional interior. I loved photographing the paintings in their new setting. 


"Listen To the Quiet"
30x40 inches

The morning sun was lazily entering the dining area and the light was so lovely.



"Creekside"
 8x48 inches
When I painted, "Creekside" I thought the painting would look right at home over a bed or on a hallway wall but then the easels came to mind and the painting blended together with the lovely mirror and iron collectibles. I loved the look!


"Creekside"
8x48 inches

One more view of "Creekside" as it greets you at the home's entry.
Thinking about mixing my abstract paintings with a traditional interior and alternative display style has made for, 
"A Painting Day".

Thanks to your son as I love seeing your work in it's environment. Also love the iron easel stands you're using to hold up "creekside". Wonderful idea :).
Stay inspired!

Michelle, Thank-you for the lovely comment. I am happy to hear you like the easels. The long painting, "Creekside" became a nice backdrop for the table collection.

Marvelous! Size can be such an integral part of an abstract work. It's wonderful to get a handle on it in this way. "Listen to the Quiet" looks so fine.
