“Where We Meet”
by Ruby Von Blush

[dropcap type=”square”]T[/dropcap]here are people who, when we first meet them, have something that captivates us. That something may flourish into one of the most rewarding and truly beautiful relationships of your life. Forever changed are we for having known them. We take them in our heart, in our mind and in our spirit. They are somehow always present in every adventure and every significant moment of your life. Be it something they said, a feeling they introduced you to or a sweet memory of an embrace they gave you. Somehow . . . living a great distance away, vast amounts of time apart or even their physical passing cannot separate you from the influence of their precious soul. They are always alive in you and printed on your soul for the entirety of time.

“Where We Meet” is inspired by my dearest friend Cole. Separated by great distance. I truly miss my best friend. I chose to paint the place I meet him frequently in my dreams. On the beautiful shore of Hanalei Kauai, there is a magical beach that has the most breathtaking view of Bali Hai. I frequently write his name in the sand so it feels like he’s there with me. That is where we meet . . . With our sweet little beach hut and giant garden to tend. We walk the beach, play in the surf and watch every sunrise and sunset. This is where we meet. In our dreams . . . as often as we can . . . My greatest Love to You my Friend. I miss you so, Happy Birthday.

“Where We Meet” is hand painted with vibrant acrylics. The frame is wood and covered in authentic “beach glass” sand found on the Island of Kauai. The painting is 12″ x 16″ with a frame of 15″ x 19″

Note from the Artist: “This was a spiritual creation for me. Inspired by someone I love dearly. It is also the first painting I have completed in 5 years. To me, that represents healing and a return to my passions, when I thought they had left me. I look forward to the inspiration as it continues to arrive in waves. I thank Jesus for the healing of my heart and his ever present attention to my well being. As his gifts manifest in me, I pray I am worthy enough to offer them in worship back to his name; for without him I am nothing.”
