I met Chris Fayad, the artist, in August 2008 in Los Angeles. We were in a hotel room drinking wine and snacking on cheese and crackers with a handful of ladies. Chris just recently had begun painting at the age of 58. I don’t know what got her started or how she ended up living on a farm in the hamlet of North Rose, N.Y., but that’s what she was doing.
Chris Fayad’s 2008 Christmas card. The Daily Triplicate/Michele Thomas
The first painting I saw was of carrots printed on a card she sent me right after our meeting. “This is what organic carrots do underground,” she wrote. The back of the card read “All proceeds go to support low income membership in Peacework Farm.”
I got her second card, the apples, at Christmas the same year. “Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Fruitful New Year,” her message read. We started off 2009 corresponding with some frequency and began to get to know each other. Again.
