Friends


By this time I'm sure that most, if not all, of you know about our fellow artist Cindy Woods, who just entered hospice care the other day. Just as I was going to post this, I clicked over to her blog and saw that she left us today.
I've always been a huge fan Cin's work, and feel a special attachment to her drawings of the people around her -- she and I spend our time in very similar environments, and I love how her portraits look beyond what most people see and show a great deal of love and humor and wonderful spirit.
This one is for you Cin. I've loved "meeting" your friends through your drawings, and especially your Annie. This is my Lil.

Oh I didn't know it was today. How fortunate that you got to spend time with her.

Your lady is wonderfully painted and has so much personality.

Linda said...

No, Teri, I never got to actually meet Cindy, although I would have loved to have! I just "met" her friends that she drew on line!

I am so touched by your words in this post. It really made me think about my own life.

Art is a powerful vehicle through which we are privileged to peek a bit into the lives of others. Your painting here is not only artisticly sensitive but also spiritually beautiful...

Your Lil must have been some kind of fabulous lady! :)

No passing is ordinary. She's left behind a legacy.

Linda, If you can, make your trip to Paducah the second Saturday of the month. Over 20 galleries and studios are open on our "second saturday" gallery walks.

I would love to see you at Gallery 5.
