About the Artwork

Go Where The Love Is (2021) by Joy C Martindale

The title of this work is a quote from the writer Salena Godden whose mother always told her to go where the love is. By this she meant surround yourself with positivity and spend time with people who believe in you and what you are trying to do.

When I heard these words I took them into my heart – I thought these words can help me as I try to find my way as an artist and a painter.

I think the advice is particularly good because it is also saying in life there will be many moments when you might not be understood or valued and when this happens don’t waste time, move on and seek others who will help you to be your best self.
