There is something soothing about loose strokes and abstract, flowing colors on canvas, and that comfort is what I found myself settling into when I looked at the nude paintings of Lyd Walls. This art was being born from somewhere. I was curious, so I invited Lyd to visit with me on Find the Good News. One of my greatest pleasures in life is getting to know the back story of a person, the beyond-beyond of a thing, lifting the rock and getting to visit the places where the roly polys play. That’s the territory that Lyd and I traveled together. Lyd has allowed her personal trials to shape her and change her for the better. She's doing the hard work, the good inner work, the work we should all do. She’s asked herself the important questions. “Who am I? Why am I doing what I’m doing? What will I do with this life?” She’s looked inside, taken the lid off, knocked down the walls, and let a new being emerge. Everything she’s learned from this inner work manifests through her hands and gives life to her artistic works. These lovely figures breathe. They are as honest, wonderful, exposed, and colorful as Lyd herself. The good she’s done for herself is a good she shares with us.
