On The Bright Side

Don't Just Look On The Bright Side, Live On The Bright Side. 
"On The Bright Side" acrylic on 3 11x14 canvases by Victoria Lynn Hall.

You may or may not be surprised to hear this, but I am not a natural born optimist.  I don't paint smiling portraits with bright colors because it reflects the way I feel all the time.  I do that because it reflects the way I want to feel, the way I could feel if I took the time to see things a little differently.  That's what painting is for me, taking the time to see things a little differently, and it always makes me feel better. 

So when I say Life Is Better With Art, I don't mean it lightly.  Art is the candle I light when I feel threatened by darkness.  Art is how I look on the bright side and when I practice it enough, I find myself living there too.
