Spirits - Ruth Andre

I had planned to travel to Fort Bragg, California on Sunday and paint the beautiful sea and coastal cliffs. As happens plans change so I am home. Saturday my mare, Angel, became ill and after three veterinarian visits, working and watching Angel all night we finally had to let go and say good-bye to this good and beautiful friend. Angel came to our farm 18 years ago. She and I were the best of friends. I will be sharing with you a post just for Angel in a few days. Angel was loved and loving. Even at the very end of her life she nuzzled my hand as if she was saying Thank-You. I am heart broken and her two pasture buddies are as well. Through tears of sadness it has been, "A Painting Day".
