Wishful Painting Wednesday: Good Thoughts = Good Life

Sometimes certain ideas are so simple that we overlook them. I wholeheartedly believe that if we think good thoughts, then good things will come. I don't mean just "things" either. I mean good experiences, good feelings, good overall. That is how this painting came into being. The yellow circles are like thought bubbles in my mind. The tight little squiggles are a mixture of all the things that cross our minds during a day. The good, the bad and the ugly. The turquoise stripes dragged in the texture into circles and all the good thoughts set free to un-spiral and become reality.

These Wishful Paintings are changing with each one I make. It is time for me to make a new one this week and I can't wait. I know the words, but the painting hasn't revealed itself to me yet. I am sure when I begin to sketch and play with the letter arrangement, it will come out. You'll see next week!
