A Painting Day - Mountain Shadow - Ruth Andre

"Mountain Shadow"
4.5"x4.5" oil & cold wax on paper
by Ruth Andre
Challenge Painting Eight

The view from my front windows is of a very tall mountain. The oak trees line the base of the mountain  and then the evergreen pines cover the mountain side leaving the valley to what is called "up country". The mountain shadow is sometimes cooling and at other times it is very cold depending upon the season. I miss the long hours of sun in winter. The mountain is strong and an old friend that I meet as I make my way through the day. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Bonjour chère amie,

Je suis très sensible à cette oeuvre... Elle représente pour moi un peu l'intimité de cette montagne qui vit à vos côtés et vous impose sa présence en vous retirant le soleil de son plein gré ! Elle vous soumet ce que vous nous offrez aujourd'hui, son ombre.

Gros bisous ☼

I am very sensitive to this work ... It is for me a little privacy of this mountain that lives with you and you needed his presence by withdrawing the sun voluntarily ! It submits you what you are offering us today his shadow.

Big kisses ☼

I love reading what you have said about the painting and the mountain. Thank-you!
