Indian Summer - Ruth Andre

"Indian Summer"
10"x10"x1.5" Oil-Wax on Cradled Panel
by Ruth Andre

After a hot summer the fall weather sets in and sometimes the temperatures are quite cold. The sweatshirts and parkas are much needed for morning walks. In years past after the rush of cold comes a week of warm weather and windy days that send the drying tree leaves on their way. This time is called, Indian Summer, and a time that I love. The seasonal change seems to bring a new energy to be enjoyed. I hope you like this painting. This particular panel has been painted and finished three times. After completion the painting has been hung in the studio and after a few weeks I have decided it was not quite right so the new painting begins. I think, "Indian Summer" will stay to be enjoyed.
It has been, "A Painting Day".

Fall is such a special time and you are right the landscape changes so dramatically. Thank-you for your comment.
