A Painting Day - Listen To the Rain - Ruth Andre

"Listen To the Rain"
4.5"x4.5" Oil and Cold Wax on Paper
Challenge Painting Eighty-Nine
12"x12" Mat
by Ruth Andre

Last week we had a lovely rain. I was in the barn listening to the rain hit the metal roof. The sound was luscious. I am just getting this Challenge Painting posted due to a lot going on lately. I leave for Fort Bragg, California on Tuesday for a week of plein air painting with friends. Packing art supplies and clothes for weather that could be warm or cool or cold is always an adventure. I choose to take layers and make them as light as possible. It will be good to be painting the sea coast with old friends.  If I catch a good painting or two I will be posting them here. Plein air painting stretches the art self and it is always a challenge. It has been, "A Painting Day".

This painting really evokes that wonderful feeling of being inside and listening to the rain on the roof. The palette and texture are beautiful.
