A Painting Day - Desert Path - Ruth Andre


"Desert Path"
6"x6"x1" Oil & Mixed Media on Cradled Panel
by Ruth Andre

I have found when change happens it appears to happen quickly catching those around us off guard. Is no one paying attention or is it we are all thinking nothing will change? Boundaries move and life changes. I have felt a need to make a change with my painting. The vision is there but letting the vision come freely to the canvas is sometimes no easy task. The painting above is an idea of the change that I would like to make. It is just a first step but a step none the less and that counts for quite a lot. This small painting took hours to complete. My goal being to find a subtle softness in the image. There are shades of white, pink and orange and many layers of transparent paint to give the work depth. The painting is a beginning of something new and has made for, "A Painting Day".

I love this one, it has such a feeling of warmth coming from it. I wish I could see this one in person to see all the subtle variations in color. It must be breathtaking.
