How I Paint

painting by Jillian

I was listening to music in my room, when I realized that I had the perfect idea for the piece missing on my wall. I struggle with forgiveness, and really, mostly with forgetting. The quote “bitterness keeps you from flying” is from the Tim McGraw song “Humble and Kind.” I want to focus on happiness, love, and the present. I don’t want to waste any more time on the bad or bad memories. 

My bedroom wall has been empty for quite a while, and I wanted to paint something this year. I thought the clouds and sun would be pretty, and planned for a quote over the painting. I used an app (PhotoGrid) to decide how I wanted the letters before painting them on there.

My letters didn’t turn out quite like the app, but it works! Have you ever painted your own art for your place? It’s kind of a lot of pressure… I don’t love how it turned out, but I still like it. 



  1. Very creative. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Have you ever wondered what is under the paint on your walls? The house I live in is very old and I look at these wall and wonder what color did they put over them before it became a rental.
    I love your idea, paint on the walls no nails for the frame needed!:)

  3. For the record, I love the way this turned out! It’s so ironic, ’cause I was recently thinking about how I’d like to add one of my own pieces of art to my bedroom wall, even if it’s just a small sketch of something. It adds to the room and makes things a little more personal while showing off a bit of an artistic flair 🙂

  4. I tried painting something for my living room at my townhouse a few years back… It didn’t work out at all how I had imagined… But it hung on the wall above my fireplace for years and years… Until we moved and I got rid of it. I like yours though. Mine didn’t have any message or meaning.
