Into the Night - The Last Forty Miles - Ruth Andre


"Into the Night - The Last Forty Miles"
4"x36"x1.5" oil on canvas
by Ruth Andre


"Into the Night - The Last Forty Miles I"


"Into the Night - The Last Forty Miles II"


"Into the Night - The Last Forty Miles III"

This is the second painting in the new series, "Into the Night". I had originally planned to stack the paintings either vertically or horizontally to make a 12"x12" triptych. Then I thought how fun it would be to show them side by side. It is a sliver of a painting but one I see in a quiet meditative setting. The title brought back memories of those road trips where you are thinking home is just over the hill and just  forty more miles. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Wonderful thick paint and such interesting colors together. It really does remind me too, of the last few miles of a road trip!
