"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement." This quote by Helen Keller really strikes a cord with me. Achievement really does grow in the soil of optimism and in the belief that we can do great things. If we only listened to the voices that told us how much could go wrong, our lives would have a very different outcome for sure. I wanted to paint a Tiffany-inspired border to this gouache painting, and it's part of a series of three that have a similar feel. Attitude, & Beauty of Dreams would pair well with this painting if you are looking to get a set.
