Two For Tuesday - Ruth Armitage

I love Tuesdays, this is the day of the week where I share a gift of art with you and we play a game.
With great originality I've titled this activity 'Two For Tuesday'.

Welcome new 'Gifters' and hello to those of you who are just popping in for a peek.  
You might like to have a look at the art which has been showcased on previous Tuesdays, this can be found in the 'Art To Enjoy' section on my sidebar. Look for this logo featuring my pots of watercolour pencils.

This week we venture into the gallery of Ruth Armitage from Oregon City, USA.
If you've known me for a little while you will see many symbols in the first painting "Paris Perchance" that have caught my eye and the second painting "Spring Song" has another.  Ruth writes that in 'Spring Song' she has painted a whimsical bird singing a happy song for you - voila!

I can't wait to read your responses to these glowing pieces and of course I know you'll want to see more of Ruth's work which you can do by visiting her Etsy store or her blog.


  1. Hi Fizz, both paintings speak to me, the first one because of the Tour Eiffel in the back and the pose of the lady; the second one because of the vibrant, cheery colors. I would pick the second one.
    I have been doing a quick calculating and I think it is very very early in your lovely corner, am I right? You enjoy your these quit hours sweet friend. I am enjoying the quit of the late late evening. in bed already with my big friend, Miss laptop, next to me ;)
    Lots of love for a sunshine-filled Tuesday, sweetest Fizz o xx o

  2. Oh dear, that's a 'quiet'. See, it is very very late here!! o xx o xx o

  3. Hmm a bit tough this week. The first one a tourist in paris and the second one the tourist finds love in paris (all that colour represents passion, love, fun). LOL a bit of fun. Charmaine

  4. I really like Charmaine's take on these.

    I love the use of colour, the hint of that rustic blue used for the reflection of light. So full of spirit and free abandon.

  5. The way she captures light is just exquisite. Even though the colour and light is so 'up', I find both these images strangely melancholy. I therefore feel they are a reflection on our 'outer' selves versus our inner selves. x

  6. Felicity, I have really enjoyed reading your recent posts. These paintings are lovely and the places you take us are very special. I am off to explore a bit more. Thanks for making my Tuesday morning such a bright one :)

  7. I like these! Good choice F!

  8. I'm not a big red fan, so I'm not really drawn the second painting. But the first evokes the individual style and chic surroundings of my favourite city in the world! x

  9. Thanks everyone for your thoughtful comments on my artwork!


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
Each new comment is a gift - unexpected and lovely.
Although I'd love to reply to each and every one, this isn't always possible, but know that I read and appreciate them all.
