"There Is Always A Bright Spot"
7"x7" Oil-Wax on Paper
by Ruth Andre
This painting has a new home.
This has been a very busy week. I shipped paintings to The Art Spirit Gallery. The gallery is featuring me in an off sight exhibit and needed more paintings. I will be blogging about the coming show shortly. After all the rush to get work framed, packed and shipped in just a week's time it is now time for a breather, a break to recharge. I went to the studio and my painting became very introspective. The title says so much and is directed to all the crazy comments that come ones way when in a crisis or death situation. There is always someone that point out what they believe are helpful words such as, luckily you have two children or, your family member or friend lived a long life or... Saying sorry is all that is needed, not a pep talk. I know they mean well but they do not understand. The bright spot may come and I am sure it will but not while the grief is so close to the heart. It is a time for healing from within. These are somewhat somber words for the day but the painting took me there so I went with it. It has been, "A Painting Day".
