Davis Ranch View - Ruth Andre

"Davis Ranch View"
6"x8" Oil on Canvas 
by Ruth Andre

Saturday I got my husband to take me to a paint out to meet plein air artists at the Davis Ranch down Hwy 88. At the moment I cannot lift, bend or twist so Tom set my pochade box and paints up for me and I was ready to paint. The Ranch sells vegetables and fruits grown on the many acres of land surrounding the store front. We were eight artist strong and took up shady spots though out the ranch. I focused on the windrow of old oaks and tall shrubs near the back of the ranch. It was really a perfect day and I chose a shady spot under the trees leading out along the road. My friend, Bruce Hancock was just across the way painting an old tractor that had a lovely rusty patina. It was a fun outing and I had the chance to meet a few new artists. It was, "A Painting Day".
