Paint your own Sunshine

In this world full of people who have no respect for our children, there should be a place they can go to find peace, joy and love.  Sometimes, for some children, that place can only be found in their imagination.  It's sad to think about it, but it is reality.

By creating art to motivate positive thoughts, I hope to be able to brighten up a child's life, to spark positive and pleasant thoughts and to help them realize that there is a place to go to get away from the pain they may be enduring.  There are good things and wonderful people in the world, but some children haven't seen much of that.  In the process, there just might be a chance that as an adult walks by and catches a glimpse of this encouragement in the form of art or words, he or she might remember what a child's life is suppose to be like, causing them to want to make a difference.

Shouldn't we want to be encouraging to children?  There are many wonderful and positive opportunities in this world.  Sadly, we hear about the bad more than the good.  Possibly that's why I felt the tug to promote more good, share some wonderful and uplifting ideas, help to bring a smile to someone's day.  Art is what God has chosen to give me, so I'm thinking I should use it, for Him, for good.

Paint some sunshine.
