Just eyes – So to map it out
You must look inside
Sure books can guide you
But your heart defines you”
Beach Chair by Jay-Z really moves me. The radio plays a lot of noise but with certain people you just know their is real talent there.

“I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”– Steve Jobs, June 2005

I’ve added a few of what I call “Quote Prints” to my etsy shop. I’ve always been a fan of *collecting* quotes. I have a special file right on my desktop and if I see a quote that I like, I quickly copy paste and add it to my collection. I figured why not have a way to have these quotes as a physical thing? So I decided to make these quote prints using my own artwork and photography. They are all 8 x 10 unless you suggest otherwise and only $9 in my etsy shop. Do you have a quote you’d like to share with me? Please comment with it or send me an email christie(AT)girloncanvas.com. I can of course make a custom made Quote Print for you if you’d like, even using song lyrics if that’s what tickles your fancy.
Also please be sure to plug your website! I’ve made a new plugboard… just for fun. http://girloncanvas.com/plug
