Pink Pearls and Paper Fish

Fall has begun, yet it is hiding behind the lingering heat of summer.  The weather is as turbulent as spring and I find my thoughts in constant prayer for those in harms way.  There is something both terrifying and mystifying about disastrous weather, we can truly see how helpless we as people are in the face of hurricane, tornado, or flood. Here in my studio, I am still at work trying to busy my mind and focus on something beautiful in order  to keep my heart from constantly worrying about my children in the path of the hurricane.  I have faith God will keep them safe, but my mother’s heart still wants to go and make them come home with me.

The latest piece was just finished up this week.  Pink Pearls and Paper Fish is acrylic on a 60 x 45 inch cradled wood panel.   This did not start out to be a watery painting but somehow in the midst of all of the hurricanes and rains it just morphed.  When I am asked what I paint I always answer, I paint my life.  This is my life right now, weather has always guided my family as farmers, but on occasion it stops us in our tracks and reminds us who is truly in charge in this world.

Prayers for all in harms way and their families who are waiting and watching from far away places.

About Cathy S. Hegman

Art, much like a road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find something that links them to the artist and the art. A work of art has the ability to resonate and touch the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration. It is my hope in this lifetime to give a part of what I have learned through and on my journey with others. The deepest form of us is revealed in our thoughts and my art is the translation of my thoughts to paper and canvas. I paint layers of color and line to create a history of marks that will guide the viewer into my world of thought and engage them in the process. I embed personal symbols throughout my art to give it deeper meaning. I encourage you to think about life in a visual way and to contemplate our connections with each other and the world we share.

    Beautiful painting Cathy, I too love to paint and came across one of your paintings some time ago on the internet. As I recall that’s how I got to follow you here on WordPress. Anyway, I find your work enchanting and thought provoking, you’re an inspiration, thank you. Vincent.
