Water Crossing - Ruth Andre

"Water Crossing"
6"x6"x1.5" oil & mixed media on panel
by Ruth Andre

This is the second painting in the 'Cross' series. I hope to do 5 or 6 paintings for the series so it will be a small collection  of works.The painting today brings back memories from when I have traveled the desert during heavy rains. It is unsettling to see the channeled  red earth fill with water and see the rush of water flowing over the surface of the land. It is as if the sleeping land awakens to the flood of water and the land comes alive with startling movement. 
 It has been, "A Painting Day".

I love the way the blue is peeking out from the red and it really does give the feeling of water on the red soil.
