The Artist

July 23, 2008

You are the artist.
Life is your canvas.

Spend years earning brushes.
Spend time finding paints.

Once achieved,
You are experienced enough to paint.
You are wise enough to paint.

Do not be discouraged by creativity.
Paint your heart away.

While painting, take time to stop.
Look at your canvas from different angles.

After filling every space with color,
Relax, and look back at the breath-taking outcome.
