A Painting Day - Sacred Ground - Ruth Andre

"Sacred Ground"
4.5"x4.5" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge Painting Thirty-Four
by Ruth Andre

Feeling the heat today must have made me paint with red. My paintings are usually quiet almost minimal but today I used mixtures of red paint giving the painting an intense feeling. The title, "Scared Ground" represents the Indian burial grounds that are found in the valley. Our small ranch must have been a harvesting area for acorns long ago. We have found rocks that make me believe they were hand held and made useful by the early settlers.

Bonjour chère amie,

Lorsque j'ai aperçu cette dernière oeuvre, sans même lire vos mots, immédiatement j'ai fait le parallèle avec la canicule qui frappe en ce moment la France. Elle illustre parfaitement cette impression de chaleur intense qui nous enveloppe.

Très joli travail, bravo l'artiste pour les émotions que vous savez magnifiquement transmettre.

Gros bisous ☼

Martine: Hello My Friend, When saw this last work, without even read your words, immediately have made the parallel with the heatwave, which struck at this time France. It perfectly illustrates this impression of intense heat which we envelope. Very nice work, bravo artist for the emotions that you know beautifully transmit. Kisses

Ruth: Martine, Thank-you for the lovely comment. It sounds like things heat up in France too. Stay cool!
