Moke Hill - Ruth Andre

Sunday was a perfect day for painting plein air and I met up with my friends, Howard Rees and Bruce Hancock and we drove to Mokelumne Hill or as the locals call it Moke Hill. We started out painting in a remote area just before Moke Hill and then moved into town for an afternoon painting session. It was a full day of painting and good fun. It definitely was, "A Painting Day".

April 2010 was the beginning date for my Blogger Blog. I started by painting the old apple tree just across the fence line from our ranch. The apple tree is gorgeous filled with white blossoms. Rain is expected tomorrow so it was a must do Painting Day.  I have enjoyed blogging and meeting patrons and other art bloggers. Blogging has its own community that gives support with comments and following. Thank-you all for making my Blog special and for following, "A Painting Day".

Back Country - Ruth Andre

It looked like spring today after a few days of hard rain and when I received an invitation from my friend, Bruce Hancock to go out and paint, I jumped at the chance. After driving through two raging creeks getting to town to meet up the weather changed with the sun going into hiding making for a very cold day. Memories are born, making for "A Painting Day".

Photo-Less Monday - Ruth Andre

I have seen blog posts where the title is, "Wordless Friday or Wordless Wednesday". Well this post is "Photo-Less Monday". I took off for the Cattlemen's Western art show without my camera. I know not a good thing to do. So the show news is rather limited except for the fact I met a lot of great people and got to see a lot of great art. I also sold a few paintings so you know that is a happy event in itself. Artists love to get feed back about their art and when someone just cannot live without a painting that you just happen to have for sale, your day is complete. The trip to Paso Robles was also a bit of a vacation. Walking downtown and having dinner at the very nice Robert's  restaurant made for a lovely evening. A stop at the the Chocolate Factory after dinner made it even better. It was good to get away and it made me love having many, "A Painting Day".
