A Posey or Two – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor

“Today is life — the only life you are sure of.
Make the most of today. Get interested in something.
Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby.
Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you.
Live today with gusto.”

–Dale Carnegie

Yeah!!!!  I really love that quote!  Don’t these little quotes help get a good day going even better?  They do it for me.  🙂

A Posey or Two – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Sharpie

This is a simple little ditty I painted from a photo reference by JustJean at WetCanvas.   Just a little fun play.  Did you see the answers to my New York City questions from Carol yesterday?  They are here if you’re curious.  I love Carol’s blog.  She is a great story teller with an interesting look at life, along with being a great artist.   Thanks, Carol!

Dale Carnegie

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and possibly somewhat later) (November 24, 1888 – November 1, 1955) was an American writer, lecturer, and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills. Born in poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936), a massive bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote How to Stop Worrying and Start Living (1948), Lincoln the Unknown (1932), and several other books.

One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people’s behavior by changing one’s reaction to them.  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Your posy cheered me up. It’s a beautiful day in NYC, sunny and warm. A day where those posies would really be appreciated.

    Love the quote too.
