Last weekend I went to a very meaningful art exhibit. It told the story of a woman’s renaissance in the years after her retirement, all through her paintings and news stories which were written about her.
To me, it was evident the artist understood the concept that “life waits for no one,” and if she was going to become a fine artist in her renaissance years she’d better get on with it. In context of her total lifespan, it was a vast body of work within a relatively short amount of time.
Not only did she dedicate the years she had left after retirement to learning how to paint well with watercolors and then oils, she committed herself to help build an artist association benefiting Harford County, Maryland.
What an inspiration! The exhibit was a wonderful way to pay tribute to an artist who has gone on to meet her Creator. She gave so much, all for the sake of her passion – art, which she discovered late in life and it brought her much personal fulfillment.
