I thought I should share some quotes I’ve been gathering. I love having quotes around…for inspiration or for using in my art or for reminding me about life….just quotes in general make me happy.
Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you. ~Marsha Norman
An imperfect something is better than a perfect nothing. ~Sylvia Henderson

We must have the daring to be nothing but ourselves if we are to know what true power is. ~Danielle LaPorte

Can you use these quotes in your art work? Can you relate to them somehow on your journey through this life?
What are some of your favorite quotes? I’d love to gather some more quotes to add to my list. Please comment below.

Let Your Inner Artist Out To Play
“Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.” –Henry Ford–
We often look at the mistakes we make as bad things. Things to be avoided and frowned upon and certainly not confessed to. But mistakes are really a way to learn, a way to grown, a way to find a new way of doing things. Henry Ford had the right way of thinking about mistakes. How do you look at them?
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk. ~Thomas Alva Edison
This seems like a great definition of Mixed Media, doesn’t it? A good imagination and a pile of junk. What are you inventing/creating today? Please share!
Quote of the Week:
Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. ~Pablo Picasso
Dora Maar Au Chat by Picasso
What a perfect quote to start the New Year off with. The new year is a time of pulling out and dusting off those projects that we started but never finished. We make resolutions and plans because the new year seems the perfect time to get re-focused on what we really want to do. So, to steal the catch-phrase from Nike – Just Do It!
Get out those paints and brushes, find your sketch pad and pencils, fondle some fabric and ribbon, whatever calls your name. And get started again!
A hunch is creativity telling you something. –Frank Capra
That hunch or intuition or gut feeling that we get sometimes, that is what we need to act upon! Sometimes we push it aside or ignore it, but it is still there. Just waiting to be noticed and used. Go ahead and listen and then create!
