I Hear Voices

"If you hear a voice within you saying,
You are not a painter,
then by all means paint
and that voice will be silenced."
~Vincent Van Gogh


  1. Mine was the opposite. Last March someone asked me if I was an artist like my husband. When I said "no," I distinctly heard the voice within saying: "Stop lying to yourself!" I started painting the next day (I never had had the courage before) and can't believe the journey I am on now... Hugs, Silke

  2. I have to agree a little with Silke :) When people refer to me as an artist I get all red in the face and say, 'oh I don't know that I'd call myself that, I mostly dabble in stuff'

    Geez, I need to own up to all the paints and brushes and accept what I am (or at least what I'm trying to be) See? It just continues! LOL

    Great quote by Vincent!!

  3. Ladis, Ladies, Ladies...be proud and shout that you Are Artists!!! You know it inside, now it is time to let it out...
    XO!!! SuZi

  4. That is so true...you can talk yourself out of doing a project...but once you start, it just flows....... Yeah, listen to that voice !
