A Painting Day - Shallow Waters - Ruth Andre

"Shallow Waters"
4.75"x4.75" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge Painting Seventy-Four
by Ruth Andre

The Mokelumne River is not far from our ranch. There are road exits to the river along the Old 49 Highway. My recent visit was spent watching over two wild preteens with a picnic in hand. The path was rather steep but both Taylor and Devon moved quickly and were at the water's edge in just minutes. I was not sure how deep or how strong the current would be but they edged into the water and  spent the next hours enjoying the cool water on a very hot summer day. It was a fun day. I enjoyed taking in the beautiful colors of the river's shallow waters.

Theresa, Thank-you so much for your comment for "Shallow Waters". I love the color turquoise and I know you use the color in your own paintings. Take care, Ruth
