‘Cristine's House’ is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a large painting on an artist’s high quality Windsor and Newton stretcher which is warp resistant.

The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas. It is painted using a combination of oil and acrylic paint which gives it extreme vibrancy and shine in some areas. In some areas of the painting the oil pigment is fluorescent which gives intense strong colour.

Ruth Mulvie's profound love for swimming pools and water takes centre stage in this captivating painting, inspired by my enchanting stay in a Santa Monica home.
At the heart of the artwork lies a picturesque mid-century bungalow, graced by a beautiful pool that serves as the focal point of the scene. The composition immerses viewers in a sense of serenity and relaxation.

Amidst the poolside oasis, sculptural cacti and agave plants stand tall, reflecting the artist's fascination with the coexistence of water and arid landscapes. Mulvie's depiction of these elements infuses the painting with textures and colours, creating an interplay between the lush greenery and the inviting pool.

Mulvie cherishes the connection between humans and animals, which are often included in her work. In this painting we see a Weimaraner dog, posed in the foreground. A character carefully positioned in this sublime set.

Through her art, she invites us to dive into the timeless allure of aquatic bliss and relish in the beauty of our surroundings.
