The Curtain - Ruth Adnre

"The Curtain"
8.5"x8.5"Acrylic-Oil-Wax on Stonehenge Paper
by Ruth Andre

Today I did some experimenting with paper and mixed media. On this piece I mixed acrylic base  colors and once they were dry I added a mixture of oil and wax. The painting, "The Curtain" is somewhat influenced by how the creek is slowing for the season. The water is like a curtain closing over the bridge and the creek water is folding inward. There is just a trickle of water passing from one side of the bridge to the other. It won't be long and the lush green grasses and ferns along the creekside will be dormant until fall when the rains come again. Have a wonderful holiday. It has been, "A Painting Day".
