“Lost warriors have only to open their eyes to find the right and good path.

Chief Red Mountain

“We all carry a fountain of joy inside. This joy is not something special given to only a few of us. An abundance of joy, happiness, and peace is our right. Our hearts were meant to be full of love and laughter.  Life will not be without troubles, but joy and gratitude will heal all wounds and shine through all problems.”

Red Toucan in Tennies – Watercolor

One may think I don’t like painting bird feet.  🙂

I leave for vacation two weeks from today!  Yay!  I only take one week off every other year, unless I travel for business.   Business trips don’t count, although I do try to add a day off to every trip, in case there’s something I want to do in that particular city.  I am really looking forward to this trip.  I get to spend time with family and some alone artist time.  Both good!

I couldn’t find any biographical info on either of these people, but I certainly like what they have to say.

Pink Poppy Flamingo in Pink Tennies

This flamingo absolutely lives in Bethville, where no wardrobe choice is a surprise.  When people look at you and laugh, it’s because your pink poppy outfit makes them happy.  I believe that to our very core, that’s what we all want… to be happy.  🙂

By the way, changing themes did not correct my wordpress issues.  **sigh**

About Peter Ustinov

British actor Peter Ustinov is best known for his Oscar-winning roles in Topkapi and Spartacus. He was born in London in 1921 to parents of blended pan-European extraction. He wrote several plays as well as a well-received autobiography, Dear Me. From 1969 until his death in 2004, he took on the role of goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, visiting disadvantaged children all over the world. He said his multicultural background gave him automatic loyalty to the UN.

Pink and Blue Tennies – Watercolor ATCs

“The Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up to it yourself.”

Both little pair of shoes were painted from the same photo of a pair of black tennis shoes.  Both shoe paintings are 2.5″ x 3.5″ ATC size watercolors.

Without an author’s bio, this post just seems so short.  🙂
