A Painting Day - Desert Chant - Ruth Andre

"Desert Chant"
10"x22"x1.5" Oil and Mixed Media on Cradled Panel
by Ruth Andre

The studio is spilling outside to the open barn. There are larger cradled panels in the works and some experimenting going on getting the paint moved around on larger surfaces. Tools that work well on small surfaces seem very limited on a larger format. My small Challenge 100 Paintings are very intimate and fine. Moving to larger works is a challenge all on its own. Today's painting, "Desert Chant" is a step up in size giving me the courage to move on to a larger panel. COMING SOON! I do love the desert colors and right now the valley has a desert look with the dried grasses and the sandy ground. 
It has been, "A Painting Day".

This has a beautiful southwest feel to it. Looking forward to seeing your larger works.
