The tree of hope by Buble The tree of hope by Buble
I did this painting for a lady who lost her son to suicide... she was visiting a brother of hers in Canada, and he'd lost a daughter in a car accident..

This lady and her brother were walking and talking and sharing their grief.. When they came upon this tree that was growing out of a rock.. She came back to Holland and told her story at a woman’s church meeting how this view had given her courage, and hope to go on, that she said.. ‘‘Even out of something hard can come something beautiful''.....
After the meeting. I volunteered to paint this .. I had no photo.. Just went by her story.... when she received it, she remarked how accurate it was. To the point that even the mountains in the background, for it was so.. And that she had not mentioned in her story to us.... needless to say, she way very happy with the painting.

Oil on canvas 60X 70 cm.

I like the contrast and smooth application of oil. Adds an almost dreamlike quality. Good job!

I really enjoy this, it reminds me of the early work of the surrealists, when the genre was dedicated to the idea of art that is "more than real". Images more beautiful than reality could be.

We're hanging in there and thank you so much for asking :hug: My hubby had a bad accident a few weeks ago, broke every finger in his right hand, so it's been a stressful time for us. I think he is on the mend. He had surgery last week and has been in physical therapy since. He plays the piano, guitar, and banjo, is Mr. fix-it, and loves to cook, so it has been a huge adjustment for him. I miss his cooking, but I'm losing weight, so maybe something good will come out of the bad, lol.

How have you been? I sure miss my friends here! :nod: =)

Hi dear heart... first tell your hubby I feel for him and sorry to read this happend to him, must have been painful, and very frustrating... thank God he did not loose his hand!!! :wow: that would have been disaterous! please wish him a speedy recovery for me! :cuddle:
then Im sure you miss his cooking and music.... what a wonderful hubby you have to do all those things.. I still think of you two as the happiest couple on DA... (due to your photo) good thing you are loosing weight! but Im sure you are not overweight :no: Now me? I am definately overweight, need to loose 30 pounds.. cant seem to get through one day though with a diet.. and I screw up.. thinking.. I'll start tomorrow.. :( Im so weak ... still trying again today, like the old saying goes.. today is the first day of the rest of your life :hungry: :giggle: take care sweets.. .. thanks for sharing with me heart:

You are so sweet! My hubby says thank you for your well wishes! :hug:

I have 30 pounds to lose, too! =( It is hard with a man that cooks like he does! :nod: I'm trying. I know your frustrations. A year ago I was working out 4 times a week for 2 months and making great progress, had a routine, etc. Then I severely sprained my ankle, and now 11 1/2 months later, it still hurts and makes working out impossible. This last year is when I gained most of the weight. Very frustrating. =(

Maybe this will be our year, friend. Hang in there! :hug:

Yes... hanging in is the most important... and a perpetual change of life style.. my eating habbits are not really that bad, but my weakness is a cookie, chocolate or ice cream... try to stay away from them as often as possible, but darn! it's so hard! :(

Sorry to read about the ankle, I sprained mine when I was 11 (soooo long ago haha) and I still feel a weakness there to this day, dont want to undermine your hopes, but it may be that you''ll always have to be careful with it.... let's think possitive and say to ourselves... " this is our year!"
Be well my friend, Hugs, karen.:hug:

It was such a sad story, he'd been missing for three weeks, found him in a river after theice melted.... very sad to say the least, and when she was telling the group about her experience, I just had to offer her my talent, as she said she could not even draw :painter:
