My granddaughter, Maggie, told me that I should paint a picture of Brook, our recently departed Labrador. When I painted Brook, her spirit showed up right away to help me. The made it easy to capture her personality. It was also totally helpful to have a super good photograph taken by the fabulous Dorka, of Dorka Photography in New Orleans.

New Orleans is a statue depicting the strength of stone. She is holding lilies in one arm signifying rebirth. In her raised hand she is spilling out golden sparkles of hope. Her wings are lined with broken glass. She has been through hell, and you can see it swirling around her in darkness. The words are from a spiritual that is traditionally sung durning the stations of the cross on Good Friday. The original is $1500.

Counting Her Chickens as They Hatch is mixed media on canvas. It is 30 x 40 inches. The original is $1500. I heard this phrase somewhere and it sounded positive and expectant. The girl doesn't realize she is a goddess. There is abundance all around her. When I was painting, I had in mind rebuilding the parks and green spaces in New Orleans.

Ruth Shively is a brillant portrait painter I love her use of high contrast, how she captures emotion, and the tone of her paintings.
