Sometimes you find inspiration in the most unlikely of places. Humans by nature look for connections in every day life that might apply to us personally. Some see these connections as just coincidence but I believe it is fate as well. For my second act, I hope to contribute a sign of faith to a stranger that may be looking for a sign (literally and figuratively) in times of second-guessing, self-doubt or despair.
The painting I used was bought second-hand from Goodwill. I made sure it had a solid hanging wire and was in overall good condition. By using paint markers, I could write clearly over the painting with a quote. I wanted the design to be colorful and over the top. After returning from Thailand I discovered a new love for bold colors and patterns which signifies a vibrant life to me.
On the back of the painting, I wrote a few love notes just in case it is ever flipped over or falls down.
The painting was hung (albeit rather crookedly) on a telephone pole in a non-descript location around Queen Anne.
We all need some signs to help us keep going or let us know we are on the right path. It doesn’t matter if this painting is destroyed, stolen, or brought home to hang up on someone’s wall. I just hope this sign brings clarity to someone else as it did for me while repurposing it.
