I Have a Passion for Painting
I feel especially fortunate to have had the creative muse accompanying me throughout my whole life. Seeing the world through the eye of an artist is such a special gift. There is beauty and interest everywhere. Virtually every aspect of my life is affected by this sensitivity and I can’t imagine it otherwise.
The muse taps me on the shoulder day and night, urging me to paint. The ideas flow so fast some times I can’t keep up. And then that muse leaves, as they all do at times and I feel so lost, but am comforted by years of knowledge that it will return and I will happily pick up where we left off. My paintings carry no deep message, but are instead manifestations of how very much I love to create art. —Ruth Hussey
