throw paint


life is a great big canvas,
and you should throw all the paint on it
that you can.

wonderful quote!!! The world would certainly be a pretty place with all our colors splashed about!

Kim Hambric said...

Wonderful! I wish I just had the nerve to toss paint. Or drip it. Or anything beside try to have complete control over it.

Perhaps this is the year to get loose and throw things.

Tara said...

I loved watching Danny Kaye movies. He was so funny. I also love that this really does look like spilled paint.

Hmmm, I can think of a few graffiti artists in NYC that subscribe to that way of thinking. Some of it's pretty darned amazing, too.

I like it. I think I'll do it...

hugs,

Lori, I'm in the process of throwing paint on my life canvas :).

I'm learning to rethink negative thoughts into more positive ones. Amazing what the outcome brings! Physically staying ahead of myself by nurturing myself so that my thoughts can be positive even more.

I think your words are very encouraging.

Erica said...

LOVE this Lori! You have such great style. . . even with "thrown paint." :-)

P.S. It's 37 and raining here in North Port (just south of Sarasota, FL and Siesta Key Beach). One more degree and we could have snow! Yikes! I'm enjoying a lazy Saturday in a fleece blankie!

Cat said...

THROW PAINT - I love it! I hope to take that advice this year!

Are things warming up a bit yet???

How do you do that and make it all look so pretty? Looks great any way you do it!

Oooh, Lori! ... you have really good aim! ;) I love this, and the quote too! ... I couldn't believe how cold the temps were down there in sunny Florida, when I saw it on the news! You need to come up here and shop for some winter clothes...good grief! Stay snuggled! ♥ ;D

Doda said...
