How will you paint your life?

"Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint you can on it." - Danny Kaye

The world is full of beauty when the heart is full of love. Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.

"Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in." - Amy Lowell

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary" - Pablo Picasso

I find the following paper art slide really amazing. Check it out!

Wow those were awesome! I really liked the castle. Imagine the time and patience it took. I notice when in the creative mode, that time goes by very fast. You become lost in process of creating. Just think of the many things we all do that taps into the creative part of our essence. :o)

Blessings to you on this enchanting day.

I love these quotes about life and art.Very apt for sure.I also love this slide show,its amazing that all those little pictures are cut from paper, and the fact that they are all done in pure white says a lot about a clean canvas on which to paint whatever one wants!!

Ahhh Very cool! :-)

Some people are just so amazingly creative! (smile)

As someone who loves to paint... let me just say that for me, painting, (right along with dance and music), is as much an expression of myself than anything.

It is sort of like an extension of my energy or something... LOL!

Very nice post Sam!

Lots of love,

Busy last few days and not much time blog hopping. Go ahead to post the PAPA Post as it is meant for sharing such a touching story.

Beauty in our heart is more important than beauty outside. But people this days, go for beauty outside. :)

Hi Jennifer,

You too are very creative! I really admire your blog banner and design. That shows your creative and talented work.

Well, I don't have artistic talent. My blog banner was created by my colleague's boyfriend.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Sam,

Thanks for giving me the permission. You are right! Beauty in our heart is more important than our outward appearance.
