Malibu Blue - Moses Botkin Challenge - Ruth Andre

Each month one artist from the Moses Botkin Challenge chooses a subject for the group to paint.  This month the Challenge was "Blue".  Just BLUE and we could paint what ever struck our fancy.  I chose a gorgeous view of the ocean along the Malibu coastline.  Visiting Malibu reawakens my love of the sea.  I doubt one could tire of its beauty.  Looking out to sea made for, "A Painting Day".  

Take a look at the other "Blue" Challenge paintings listed below.  I am sure you will find them delightful.  I love them all!

Such rich, rich color. That mustardy gold with the deep blue is glorious and the texture you achieve is so interesting.
