Over the weekend we attended a friend’s art exhibit at the LaHave Bakery Galley. It’s almost breathtaking to see someone’s life displayed through art of any form, to be an observer of how they grew over the years. The work displayed (Yes, we refer to it as work but as my friend, Jude, would say it’s not work–it’s play, it’s fun) covers a span of over forty years. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share some of my favourites since I obviously can’t post all 36 pieces of art. Here’s a bit of what Jude has to say about her art.
” I draw and paint my world through the eyes of my soul. This is how I see the world. These manifestations of my soul are a result of where I live, what life I have created, what I love, how I see, how I’ve grown and have enriched my home, my life”
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Thomas Merton
