Thread Bare | Study - Ruth Andre

This is a donation painting for the WHODUNNIT show coming up at The Art Association of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It is the 5th Annual Anonymous Art Sale to benefit the Art Association's art education program. Each canvas is just 6x6 inches and the artists are allowed to only sign the back side of the painting. The auction begins and when the painting is purchased, it is then the patron can see the artist's name. The show is quite a popular art event. 

There are things in the life that we may pass over but truly enjoy. One of these for me is an old thread bare blanket with years of wear and softness There is a life lived in something old with the patina of time. I enjoyed painting this little painting and it maybe back as a larger work in the future. There is a real boost of energy in this work that has made,
 "A Painting Day".

With each painting you post, I have a new favorite, but this one tops them all so far! I love the dash of blue and it really pops against the other colors. Great energy and movement in this one, too!
