A Painting Day - Shelter From the Storm - Ruth Andre



"Shelter From the Storm"
6"x18"x1.5" Oil & Mixed Media on Cradled Wood Panel

Today I painted but I also took shelter from the raging storm just outside my door bringing much needed rain to the valley. Being tucked away under a luscious  cozy throw with a good book in hand I felt right with the world. I thought about the life changing storms in my life. How sadness for one thing or another has made me seek shelter giving way to solitude with my thoughts. Seeking shelter is what gives me the strength to move forward as the storm retreats in my own mind. It has been, "A Painting Day".
