A Painting Day - Be Mine - Ruth Andre

"Be Mine"
12"x12" Mixed Media on Paper
by Ruth Andre

I was feeling a great sense of love and happiness when I painted this painting, "Be Mine". The palette of colors are very different than most of my paintings. I almost had to force myself to set out only a few pastel paints so i would not stray to my love for grey. Sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to make a change. It is so easy to stay in our found circle for what we consider safe. Reach out and take risks to find new paths is my goal for 2016. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Bonjour chère amie,

Une peinture qui susurre le parfum des pivoines... C'est ce que je ressens en l'admirant... Les pivoines sont si délicates et leur parfum si subtil... A elles seules elles sont le Printemps.
Une peinture qui réunie sensibilité, arômes, fraîcheur, pureté et douceur... Sans doute êtes-vous tout cela à la fois !

Gros bisous ♡
