"They could tell you how to paint their landscape, but they couldn't tell you how to paint mine."
"A large red drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone."
"Write on your heart that every day is the best day in the year."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea."
"A river may twist and turn on its way to the sea, but it knows its destination."
This beautiful photograph taken last week by my high school friend, Mary, of a Florida sunset, inspired me to pull a few quotes from my lengthy quote collection. I have a page in my art journal about water--and I'm going to write them all in there. I think it's important, in the digital age, to use your handwriting in your art. Someday, your children and their children will want to see it! Who knows how far in the future handwriting may become a very treasured thing. As much as I treasure the sea.
Eat soup, Write daily, Dream sweet, Stitch sassy.
