*Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Read this today and thought of everyone here and how we could all have the same pattern and every one would come out different. I love how each of you put a bit of your soul into your paintings! Ya'll have a wonderful day! ~Anj

Anj...thank you for the quote and how right you are about us, we all have the same love of painting only different ideas on how we do it and thats what makes everyone so special!


RE: Cute saying....

I am a lover of "words" as much as painting. I have a notebook I keep my favorite sayings and quotes in. I even have the ones I want on my funeral program - I know, who really thinks like this - well, I like being prepared. So, I have all the instructions written down as to what I want - my husband says it is because I want to have the last word.

I love this quote and will add it to my blog. It is perfect for painters.

RE: Cute saying....

Perfect quote. Part of the fun of painting is that the pictures and patterns are "guidelines" but we can each do our own thing to make them our own. Luvs

RE: Cute saying....

Painting fool, I can tell you who thinks like you do, ME. I made a pretty, long flannel gown in a champagne color trimmed in lace and a quilt to cover me up with for my funeral. I called the local casket company for the inside dimentions of an adult casket. I figure I am not going to a fancy ball so I don't need fancy clothes. I am going to sleep for awhile. Vique.

Oh gosh!! Ya'll are funny! Guess that's not something I want to think about just yet! =D

RE: Cute saying....

Great quote you've shared Anj. This is so true.
