I Shut My Eyes…
I SHUT MY EYES IN ORDER TO SEE… Paul Gauguin
MAYBE, just maybe I should have given this painting that title. “I Shut my eyes in order to see”, acrylic on canvas by Patricia Missler.
However, it’s a newly completed commission for a Texas client who wanted something very special for their baby girl who is due in the next few months. What a blessed child to come in to such a loving home. The parents are full of anticipation for the life and soul that will soon be in their midst.
I’m thrilled to have been chosen to play a tiny role in this lovely soul’s entry into this world. When she is able to focus on colors and objects, she will be able to see this 3’X5′ painting hanging by her bed that was created only for her. In a sense, I did so with my eyes shut so that my open heart could better see and my hands could better express the light, love and happiness that everyone feels for this special baby.
