A Plethora of P’s / #10: “Paint”

February 28, 2011 § 2 Comments

What would the world be without paint?! Whether you’re an artist or an appreciator, life without paint would be a lot less interesting. So … why not … paint something?!

Paint a wall. Paint a chair. Paint a picture. Paint a story. Paint a dream.

Not good with a brush? Here’s the really fun part ~ you don’t have to paint a thing. You can paint in your mind. Paint with your imagination. Slather on some color with sweeping mental brushstrokes. Dab the corners, glory in the details, add some highlights, make it as bold or as subtle as you want. Go ahead! Get messy. Paint from your heart and let those pigments passionately permeate your world. Paint your day a new color.

Problems might still be there when you’re done (unless you’ve managed to paint them away…!)… but you’ll probably come at them with a refreshed point of view. And if nothing else, you’ll have had a fun break.

    You know, all I really needed was to use that quote on this one. Wish I’d thought of that! Of course, part of my thing here is to articulate a bit… but that quote says it all! Not to mention, the quote’s author is yet another “P”…

    And yes, “play” is on the list!

    Hurray! Love the visual! Paint! Play! (ooops, another “p” word :o)
