follow your own path painted canvas page


Had another play with paint this morning. I made some painted flags with my son for the garden and I painted this page for my canvas book. The quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail". I think this quote is so inspiring and encourages us to venture out of our comfort zone and try something new. I have painted this girl with blue eyes for a change and I think the flowers have come out well as I was trying to do them in an impressionist style!
