Literary Quotes

 Good writing always makes me want to paint.  Here is some of the artwork  that has been inspired by quotes that I like.

There are a lot of words that are important to me but perhaps none more so than  HOPE.  Being bi-polar, life has been challenging at times but I have always tried to focus on possibilities and live in a place of hope.  These words by Emily Dickinson resonate with me and they are the first quote that I painted.  The painting hangs in my bedroom and I reflect upon these words  everyday.
