Life Imitates Art & AttitudeThe close relationship between life and art stirred Oscar Wilde to coin the famous quote, “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”

Artists truly are the movers and shakers of the world. Artists have been at the forefront of every epic era and it’s inspiring to understand the importance of being an artist in today’s modern world.

Winston Churchill wisely stated, Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Our attitude is a personal choice and that decision will help determine our successes or failures each day.

I have a bulletin board in my studio where I post and inspirations. Recently, I came across an old magazine clipping that expresses the importance of attitude.  The timeless words are especially relevant in light of the world  challenges we all are facing.  I hope find this as empowering as I do.


How are you greeting each day? Is it with an attitude of expectation and confidence? Or do you rise with a sense of depression and dread? You have a choice. And as the day unfolds, there are more choices, moment by moment. The day is an empty canvas. The shapes and colors the canvas gives back to you will be the shapes and colors you put there. The shapes and colors are yours to choose. You can see through the eyes of hope or the eyes of despair. You can make music with your laughter, or you can call down thundershowers with your tears. You can build or you can destroy. You can experience abundance or poverty. You can love, or you can hate. The choices are there, each minute, each hour. There is no neutral ground. Each moment makes its demand on you as you paint away on the canvas that is your life. Every thought, every mood is a conscious choice.

Choose Well ~ Lori 🙂
