A Painting Day - A Road Less Traveled - Ruth Andre

"Road Less Traveled"
4.5"x4.5" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge Painting Thirty-Seven
by Ruth Andre

Living in the back country on a dirt road has in its rewards and its setbacks. The county works on the valley road twice a year and in between those times the road can become an obstacle course at best. After our venture to Southern California and the constant traffic we were somewhat in love with our old road when we returned home. It is fine and dandy. The washboard drive in and out of the valley are virtuous compared to 7 lanes of traffic going one way down the open road in Los Angeles. The painting today made me think of the valley road in summer with the dust and bumps. Welcome to country living I say when friends arrive from town. It has been, "A Painting Day".
