Sand Creek - Ruth Andre

"Sand Creek"
8"x10" oil & cold wax on canvas
by Ruth Andre

The drought here in California has already started taking a toll on the wildlife and natural grasses.  We are promised another storm this coming week and hopefully it will help us get through the seasons without too much damage. Thinking how important the creek is to the wildlife and the valley lands has made for,

Really like this piece. I feel it has texture galore.
I hope you receive more rain; I know how much it's needed.
