I went to the Brooklyn Museum of Art a couple days ago and the painting I’m standing in front of really spoke out to me. It’s called Wind, Sunshine, and Flowers by abstract expressionist painter Alma Thomas.Her work is super dope and the most inspiring part about her story is that she didn’t start developing her signature painting style until she reached her 70s.
As an art educator she was always painting but the height of her career was during her retirement years. I love that. Tells me that you are never to young or too old to do what you love.
Take a look at some of her other paintings below:
