6"x6"Oil on Archival Canvas Panel
by Ruth Andre
There are times I wonder why I like the solitary figure in a portrait painting or a lone tree in a landscape painting. Some of my friends tease me about painting just a tree but these trees seem to speak to me so I paint them. I like things that are minimal and feel uncomplicated even if they really are. I like to see a small painting perched on an easel on my desk or side table. The paintings feel intimate and my own. They are just a breath of another world or time and I really like that idea. It has been, "A Painting Day".
