An eclectic selection of paintings – still life & landscape.
Ruth’s studio has a marvellous array of beautiful objects calling to be painted. The sun shines in through the French doors, bathing the mantelpiece with light, creating a perfect place for ‘assembly’.
Afternoon Light on Bottles 2019 shows just that – the light dancing on each blue or green old bottle. Their form, size and particular colour resonate from a time long past. They sit on the marble mantle with a sense of belonging. The water jar sits in contrast as a necessary element for dipping the brush. The pattern in the background is borrowed from a Danish plate.
