Surround Yourself With Positive Influences

What a weekend. I have started two new paintings and I am very excited. One is actually from the study titled "Lily" under the new paintings area of my blog. The other is an idea that I have had in my head for a few months. It is about a nightmare I had months ago. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be literal in my approach or abstract but I know now how I want to proceed.

Message of the Day:

A good friend of mine once said, "Life is not difficult. People make life difficult".
The older I get the more I understand what my friend meant by this. But there is a way to counter the negative influences you may come across. Surround yourself with positive people, fill your mind with positive thoughts, and open your heart to positive experiences. This is how we get through each day with dignity and grace.

Take Care and Keep on creating!
