Day 294 – Paint Softly

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred Ninety FourIf you can learn from hard knocks, you can also learn from soft touches. – Carolyn Kenmore

I love painting with over the top color – except of course, for those times I crave painting softly.

When painting softly remember – carry a BIG paintbrush – just in case.

Until tomorrow.

Day 293 – Even A Small Key

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred Ninety ThreeA small key opens big doors. – Turkish Proverb

Choose to do something that means something to you. Choose to find a place for your energies and your passions. It isn’t about finding the right idea or the right cause or the right job. It is about unlocking a door and stepping past the threshold – that is the biggest step.

When you choose and take action it will open amazing new paths in your life. Have faith that you hold the key. It may feel small and inconsequential but it also holds the promise of very big and wonderful things.

Until tomorrow.
