Daily Artsy Figurative Paintings

Pale. Kat Hannah.

When you’re hurting, the color seems to go out a bit from the world.  Having just spent the two weeks by my mom’s side, watching her struggle against a body that is failing, witnessing her spirit soar in one moment, only to crash in the next, it seems strange to get back to “normal”.

On one hand, I want to savor each day with fervor, for now more than ever, I know there is no promise of tomorrow.  But then something will grab hold of me, the whisper of a memory grips my heart and I am undone.

It’s a struggle to climb out of that hole, once you’ve lost your footing.  Everything goes pale.  The colors fade like old sheets washed too many times.  But eventually, given time and love, slowly the washed out places will become renewed and refreshed.  I know that I’m not in my palest period, yet.  But I also know that the loss of color won’t last forever.  It will return in even greater brilliance.

It is ok to languish in the pale for a while, though.  It has to be.
