“Good Thoughts”

good thoughts wtrmk copy

“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

Today’s quotable is an old favorite.  The original is done in watercolor on an 11×14 sheet of paper.  The top half was done with a wash of golds and oranges.  Once dry, I used an permanent ink pen to outline the words and details, then painted around them in black.

I love the quote itself, isn’t it so true?  Whatever we are thinking, lovely thoughts, or bitter hateful ones, seem to practically ooze out our pores even when left unsaid.  Put some good thoughts in there today!

Prints available in my etsy shop.

  1. I am obsessed with this your artwork … it rocks and the quote just makes me smile. Am going to try the lettering you describe and hope it turns out. I just happen to have a background page waiting for something, and so this is it. Also a great reminder that we can renew our minds and cast our worries and anxieties on Him for he cares.

  2. I really love all the choices you made for this – the whimsical style, amazingly happy colors, and quote from one of my favorite childhood authors. It’s just amazingly good.
