Maudie

April 28, 2017

I went to see MAUDIE today. It is a most wonderful film, a magnum opus, of a real woman’s life. A friend heard that Maud Lewis painted straight from the tube. She used house paint straight from the can. She was tremendously well portrayed. Her humour was like quiet gentle sass. It made me smile every time.

I saw her little painted house at the Gallery in Halifax. It was a humbling experience. So great a spirit was not to be contained.

She made what looked like an impossible life, beautiful. When she could barely hold a brush, still she painted. And Everett, he felt loved too in the end.
