Trudy's Big Beautiful Heart

Beautiful Trudy...Where to begin?
I met Trudy in May in the Etsy forums, her colorful avi caught my eye right away and I had to see her shop and find out more about her.  Trudy creates vibrant, beautiful paintings as a means to survive and persevere after the loss of her twin sister, Jude.  It looks to me like she has found a way to open the door and invite us all in to the celebration of life. Please enjoy Trudy's wonderful paintings and her inspired words.

"The minute I spotted this gorgeous sunlit sunflower, I knew that I had to paint it. I had never seen one this color before! It was so vibrant, so orange!
The sunflower represents warmth, happiness, adoration and longevity. The orange and red colors also represent passion."

"We have all experienced pain in our lives. Knock you on your bottom sadness...crying tears that had no end. When I was in the depths of the abyss I called it my , "Humpty Dumpty Years." "All the King's Horses and all the King's Men Couldn't Put Humpty Back Together Again."
Time DOESN'T heal all wounds. It is what you do with that time! May this beautiful painting be hanging in full view of those who need it! The author is anonymous. It was an honor to paint this piece to match these profound words. "

"I sold this print at a Farmer's Market and everyone who saw her had a good laugh...I knew exactly which one they were looking at! Gotta love ZZA ZZA!
I love people on the edge and she certainly fills the bill on that one. She is an icon. Love her or hate her you'll still laugh!
She also looks so fabulous with her fancy hairdo and her sexy come hither eyes!
The disgruntled gentleman at the bottom of the page is my husband! I see that look often! (JUST KIDDING!)No I"m not!"


"I want my art to make you make you laugh..tug at your make you feel an emotion! I want my art to wake you up as it has me!"

Trudy certainly has painted a vibrant world for us to wake up to!  Much mahalos (thanks) to Trudy for cheerfully agreeing to let me use her paintings to decorate my blog!
Please visit Trudy's shop to see all of her paintings and read more about her.
