Rusty Water

Rusty Water             oil on linen panel                         8" x 10"
It was good to get back to a daily painting today after not being able to for a week or so. These fallen trees were at the water's edge along the Yellowstone River last fall and the water had thick layers of leaves which turned the water rusty looking. I loved working with the blues of the shadows above and then the orange below....perfect compliments. On another note...I have a painting give away at the end of this month....check out the details in my latest newsletter.

Bonjour chère amie,

La beauté des couleurs de vos troncs, cette eau aux nuances de rouille et la luminosité du ciel qui vient s'y admirer, une peinture plus que belle... la vie capturée avec toute votre sensibilité.
Bravo ! La sérénité parfaite celle qui m'apporte du bien-être...

Gros bisous
