Lone Cypress - Ruth Andre

"Lone Cypress"
4"x5" oil on canvas
by Ruth Andre

It was the end of the day and I was waiting for my painting friends to breakdown their easels and call it a day. When I saw them lingering I thought I might have time for just one more small painting. This old bushy Cypress was rugged and had to be strong to hold on through many a windy day. Luckily it was a glorious sunny day as we painted along the Butte's edge. It was, "A Painting Day".

This is very different for you, Ruth = )

Hi Sue, It may seem different but it is more of a vignette or a small study that was done quickly. I love the singularity of the bushy Cypress. I think it is fun, a small portrait for this solitary old fellow.
