Claude Renoir, youngest son as child

renoir arthritis+paintingFrench impressionist painter Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) painted despite partial paralysis and cruel rheumatoid arthritis until the end of his life. Painting with his brushes taped to his crippled hand, especially moves me. To the end of his life, Renoir’s three sons helped their ill father, who was wheelchair-bound later in life. His children often helped him in his painting, posing for him from the time they were small and later as he grew more disabled, binding his brush to his arthritic hand and with his paints, brushes and palette. Renoir’s wife passed away a few years before his death.

From an NPR interview linked here…

country womans altar

It is the longest night and the returning of the light. It is my prayer and my intention to bring peace and truth to my small place on the planet, both here and with those I love. I am inadequate but I will try to stay on the path. Might we all find solace in knowing it is one moment at a time. Always with the knowledge that what we experience may be changed in an instant. That truth transmutes all we do, all we offer, all we think. There is somewhere within that knowing, power to make a change.

“Sisters and brothers, we get to carry each other.”
