Hand in Hand
This country boy in the clover is an example of my reverse painting on glass, However, I painted it on plexi- glass.
One day when our grandson, Wyatt came over to visit, my husband, Rich and I decided to take him to the park in town. I had wanted to show Rich a trail there that intersected a trial I used to ride horse back on as a teen ager. And what a beautiful day it was to take Wyatt. Along the way, I picked up a tiny toad to show it to Wyatt. I put it back, and we went a ways before Wyatt pointed out another tiny toad.
He then claimed a pine cone from the trail as his own. Rich called it the souvenir we had bought him. We rode on the slides, swung on the swings, climbed on the climbing things, and had a wonderful day in all. It made for some great photographs to paint with later on, so I still got to see and enjoy our grandson, while painting, even while waiting to play with him again the following weekend.
There is something about people being hand in hand that is universal. It’s a thing that unites us. As a youngster in the first grade of elementary school, some are taught to pair up and proceed to our destination, not ever alone.
Even when not holding hands, the shoulders may touch, creating the same type of closeness.
People are social beings, though there are times in life when we need to be with ourselves, to learn who we are before we are able to present ourselves to others.
We require our personal space, and some more so than others.
As one of the people who need more time alone than others, there is still a small empty spot within that never gets filled. But why would I worry over such a fine point. I doubt anyone will lose sleep over it.
The reverse painting on glass you can see posted on this sit is an accumulation of my artwork over the last seventeen years or more.
