"Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely"

My Monday inspiration came to me this morning by way of  Tara Leaver's  email that started with this lovely quote:

”Happy are the painters, 
for they shall not be lonely. 
Light and colour, peace and hope, 
will keep them company to the end of the day."  

Winston Churchill

This lovely Churchill quote comes from the book, "Painting As A Pastime" (first published in 1948), and it is in the Canadian public domain (but may be under copyright in some countries.) for free at Project Gutenberg Canada ebook #1373

"Painting As A Pastime" by Winston S. Churchill

"Painting is a companion with whom one may hope 
to walk a great part of life's journey."

"Buy a paint-box and have a try."

I encourage you to sign up for Tara's newsletter emails (fortnightly letters in your inbox full of stories, ideas, offerings and new things to try. ) or to read her blog that has articles such as: How to start a painting: 7 artists reveal their process.

Happy painting!
