“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” ~Vincent Van Gogh
“Can I paint?” my youngest child asked. I pulled out the palette, placed the paper in front of him. The rest of the children joined in too. When he finished he said his painting was called ‘Tornado in Space.’ You can tell by looking at it the fun he had making swirls in different colors.
We should all paint just for the sheer joy of it now and then. What joy, what freedom it brings!
I’ll be sharing inspiration art quotes over the next few weeks in hopes you’ll pull out the brushes, the pastels, the palette of colors too. Be inspired by more Quotable Wisdom with the ladies of iHomeschool Network.

When was the last time you picked up a paint brush? By all means paint!
