High on the Bluff - Ruth Andre

"High on the Bluff"
6"x6" oil on canvas
by Ruth Andre

I was out painting at the Noyo Harbor in Fort Bragg, California and the wind was fierce. The gusts of wind came in so hard that my hand would sail across the canvas to the point that I had to scrap two paintings. I was ready to call it a day when I  saw this cluster of trees high on the bluff as I looked out from the harbor. They looked as if they were greeting the boats as they made their way into the harbor. The painting day is what makes memories for plein air painters. I was not just painting I was feeling all that surrounded me and it was truly, "A Painting Day".
