I. F - Proverb

Grazing - 7" x 5" mixed media/acrylic

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence- or so the proverb says. If you think this way, then either climb the fence or just get on with life on your side. I talk to my students a lot about only worrying what you can control and trying to be happy and and find the positive of whatever situation you find yourself in. Fear and negativity don't jive well with creativity and productivity. So be like this horse and enjoy the grass that's on your side of the fence... while you figure out how to get some from the other side as well.

Really enjoy your paintings. I wish they were higher quality images so we could see more of the brush strokes...

Thanks guys. As for the image size- I have to strike a balance between images loading fast and tempting people to steal images that are closer to high resolution that could be copyright infringed. Try to be happy that I don't paste annoying watermarks over everything.
