Little Piece of My Big Painting – Acrylic on Canvas

“Believe in yourself!  Have faith in your abilities!  Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
–Norman Vincent Peale

Little Piece of My Big Painting – Acrylic on Canvas

Here is a second little look at a piece of the 24″ x 48″ painting I am working on.  The first piece is here.  My husband was out of town last night, so I played with it some more.  It’s going to take forever with all the layers of acrylic, but I am having so much fun working on it.   By the way, it seems strange to call such a joyful experience “work”.  😀

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale (May 31, 1898 – December 24, 1993) was a minister and author (most notably of The Power of Positive Thinking) and a progenitor of the theory of “positive thinking”.

Peale was born in Bowersville, Ohio. He graduated from Bellefontaine High School, Bellefontaine, Ohio. He has earned degrees at Ohio Wesleyan University (where he became a brother of the Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta) and Boston University School of Theology.

Raised as a Methodist and ordained as a Methodist minister in 1922, Peale changed his religious affiliation to the Reformed Church in America in 1932 and began a 52-year tenure as pastor of Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan. During that time the church’s membership grew from 600 to over 5000, and he became one of New York City’s most famous preachers.
