“Calm Desert” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub
“Calm Desert” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub.
The desert is a place of calm and rest for me. When I was in my early 40’s I imagined what calm and rest might look like once the kids were grown up and no longer needed mommy to remind them to brush their teeth, or where clean cloths. At that time I had all five kids living at home. Driving to school every morning, working while the kids were in school. Then picking kids up from school. Afternoon activities. Sporting events in the evenings. Sneaking in more work hours after the kids were in bed.
I loved every busy moment of those days. Yet like every busy parent there are those wandering thoughts of what we want our lives to be like when they grow up. I have said for years that I am going to take a few years and watch every movie I was to tired to go and see. I would catch up on the sitcoms that everyone was talking about, and read all the books I bought and started. I would get a tan, and play more golf and tennis and paint more. I would extend my walks to 4 miles instead of the quick two I might be able to get in.
I met a man whom I had known many years before. We started dating and that lead to an intentional relationship. He brought me to the desert. The calm of retirement days to come. One afternoon we were on a hike. I thought of the calm my life is now. I cannot imagine how I managed those busier days but those days are behind me. And I am here in the, “Calm Desert”.
Although the tones of the desert are more hues of grays and browns my version is in subtle brighter colors. Isn’t that what abstract painting is all about? My visual interpretation, through my experiences and my thoughts. Amen and Glorybe I love this piece.
This piece is available in various sizes. Please note that the digital picture is as close to the colors as the original. There will always be a slight variation.
Each print is a beautiful Gallery Wrapped Canvas with attached sawtooth hook ready to hang. I have a number of frame options which we can discuss at time of order.
