Make Mine With Cream - Ruth Andre


"Make Mine With Cream"
6"x6" oil & mixed media on panel
by Ruth Andre

If you follow my blog you have noticed the landscape and abstract painting posts. One may not seem to go with the other but they both feed my soul. I love the plein air painting for so many reasons. I am outside and I am surrounded by nature's beauty. The color in the natural landscape is there to see without filters and a joy to paint. The abstract paintings are a big part of me. I love graphic shapes and intense strong colors. I love to paint from my own personal reference. There is nothing in front of me, no guidelines, just pure design and color to put down as I wish. I am open to see more than the templet that maybe in front of me. Painting abstracts lets me be free to make my own way with the paint. Cream is such a lovely word. I mean there is the tasty cream in coffee and the cream of the crop so today I say Make MIne With Cream so all will be right with the world. It has been,
"A Painting Day".

Bonjour chère amie,

Je pense que cette dernière peinture représente la joie... la joie que vous avez de peindre et de vous sentir bien dans ces moments-là.
Il résume un très joli sentiment, une belle perception.
Figer son état d'âme...

Gros bisous ♡
