Art From The Heart

 

One of the things that’s been fun for a group of my friends over the years is going to various art shows for our incredibly talented artist friend, Cindy.  She has an adorable art studio at her home where she develops and perfects her craft.

How cute is this little Santa Clause?  She painted it at Christmas…..

And, how cute is this art studio?

This is a drawing she did of our group of friends.  (I’m the one in the middle) We each got a copy. Cool, huh!

We’ve been to many of her shows and exhibits over the years – all so much fun – and this particular art exhibit was held in Fort Worth with a great many other talented artists from the area.  Her theme for this series was butterflies….

Which is especially meaningful to me this year with the loss of my father and my (step) mother-in-law, both whom I loved dearly.  For me butterflies represent  blossoming from this life to the next….free and beautiful, their spirits cloaked in their new bodies….joyful and free to embrace their new world.  I love that thought…..that picture of their life continuing even more beautiful than it was before.

The unfortunate white glare you see in some of these is from my camera flash.

(This is normally a g-rated blog, but I love these wonderful paintings!)

One of the advantages of having an artist for a friend is that we get to tag along to her art shows to see her art, hob nob, eat and drink for free and generally party in style. Aren’t connections fun?

Our good friend, Becky, with Cindy.  Can you pick her out in the drawing above?

Her son, a big fan as well, here with his girlfriend.

A great turn out, great art, great food and a fun evening with great friends.  If you’re interested in any of her artwork please contact her through her website.

Happy Decorating!
