It’s All In The Shoes

Shoes two

We were standing in the sun, a light rain — a beautiful day for all practical purposes.

In that moment, riveted, I knew I was watching someone with the heart of a servant.

Parilee Croft was cleaning my muddy shoes. Please indulge me to tell you about this person, a friend I know and love. One of the Angels in my life.

On the surface we could not be more different. Parilee is Artist-in-Residence for Art on the Green.  After painting at the Gallery all day,  Parilee takes her beloved dog, Kep, to herd sheep after she leaves the Gallery. You heard correctly, herd sheep.  She herds sheep while I rush home to watch Dr. Phil! (scary, I know.)

on the River

Parilee and friend on the River.

Parilee’s vacations are fishing, mine are going to the Capital Hotel for a few nights. (Those Frette sheets get me every time.)

Woodworking

Parilee in Woodworking class at the Arkansas Arts Center.

Parilee is in woodworking class, refinishing her grandparents antique bed, while I’m just beginning to make mine!

Yet, at our core, we are very much alike. WE OWN OUR OWN VOICES. Novel? Yes, and    she is beautifully unique. We don’t always agree, but we talk it out. Like grownups should. We have become a ‘team’ in the Gallery, and I value her advise – I know I will get her truth. Truth is a beautiful thing to me; just imagine receiving that truth, from a real, true Servant of God.

There is not a more lovely person in this world. We will always get ‘her truth’ and we have become great friends in a short period of time, because we are truth lovers.

Woodworker, Sheep herder, Artist, Teacher, Dog lover, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Friend. Parilee Croft is extraordinary. Come visit Art on the Green; have a Starbucks with Parilee. Who knows? She might even take you fishing!
