"Red Creek"
6x6x1.5 inches, oil-wax on panel
by Ruth Andre

Red has always been a favorite color and today I wanted to paint red and did just that. I wanted to feel deeply and red seemed to be the color that came to me to use. I have had an amazing amount of sad news lately. I don't know if it is just that time in my life or I am paying attention and feeling empathy for those left behind in a more profound manner. Deep feelings made for, "A Painting Day".

You made a great choice with red. I love it too but am a little frightened by its force. Your painting is beautiful.

The emotion and feeling is so evident in your painting.
