Head in the Clouds, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 7"x5"
Lofty thoughts about painting today. Original art paintings give you something. Sometimes that something is more valuable than what you've paid for.
You may find joy in the way the subject uplifts your soul or in the way the colors fill your heart. You may find excitement in the way your eye follows the lines and shapes. You may find the pleasure of recognition deep within the canvas, or you may find peace as the canvas to transports you to another world.
A painting may tie together the colors in your room, brighten a dull corner, make a statement about you and your family, or just fill a space on your wall. But it will give you something.
If you've let your heart choose, it's something that will bring you much pleasure for many years. And if you've chosen wisely, another generation will thank you!
