My Day Job

My Day Job:

I get to work with the most
amazing artists each day.

The Artist at the Studio at Living Opportunities may have disabilities, but all I see is the ability to enjoy the present. I see creativity and the ability to share love. I am a lucky person to get to share my time with these people.

This month I would like to share about one of our most well-known artists: Mieke Ryneal. Mieke has been painting at the Studio at Living Opportunities for about 7 years. Everyday I watch Mieke paint in her own individual and unique style—all while happily listening and signing songs of joy on her iPod. Mieke’s ability to paint in a pointillism style is only rivaled by the masters of art history. As Mieke paints with her one-of-a-kind wooden tool she does not even touch the surface and her paint magically dances onto the canvas. It is a miracle to witness.

Working backward in time from December 2012;  I want to share with you some of her artwork. It takes Mieke three to four months at eight hours a week to complete a painting. Here is the current piece she is working on (with details) plus a couple of past pieces.

    • Thanks Rose. I love my job. Maybe someday you can stop by and experience our Studio. It would also be fun to get together and create some art. I am thinking of starting a ladies art club. Would you be interested?
