Ruby - Ruth Andre

I did a studio Waltz today, meaning I picked up the brushes and moved the paint around after a month away from painting.  The dance felt like I had to remember where to put my feet and how to move once again.  My camera is still packed so you are seeing an iPhone photo of this Texas Longhorn cow painting of Ruby.  I see changes and a need for a better photo but I wanted to touch base and get back to posting.  I am taking one step at a time and that includes making today,
 "A Painting Day".

While I Was Gone - Ruth Andre

My last Blog post was December 24, 2011.  A whole world of events have transpired since that time.
The most important being my mother, Lorean Armes, died on January 6th, 2011, leaving many memories with all that knew her.  I have learned there is always good that comes with what seemingly seems sad so in the next weeks, months and years I will continue to share life stories that helped me be
 the person I am today due to my mother's diligent teachings.
 I will also share painted images of those things that brought joy and comfort to me while I was gone.
