Art for Inspiration: Garden View with a Dog by Tomás Yepes

Garden View with a Dog, c1665
by Tomás Yepes (1595 – 1674)

All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog.
Charles M. Schulz

Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.
John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way.
Ashly Lorenzana

Art for Inspiration: Elegant Ladies at Rest Beside a Pond by Louis Emile Adan

Elegant Ladies at Rest Beside a Pond
by Louis Emile Adan (1839 - 1937)

A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.
Leo Tolstoy, Family Happiness

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

Friendship arises out of mere Companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden). The typical expression of opening Friendship would be something like, "What? You too? I thought I was the only one."
... It is when two such persons discover one another, when, whether with immense difficulties and semi-articulate fumblings or with what would seem to us amazing and elliptical speed, they share their vision - it is then that Friendship is born. And instantly they stand together in an immense solitude.
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Free Vintage Postcard for Collage Art Making, Scrapbooking or Graphic Design: Romantic Couple in the Garden of a French Chateau


You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most.
I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Ooh la la! Look at this tender, romantic scene from an old tinted French postcard. A pretty young lady, wearing a yellow and pink dress, is having sweet nothings whispered into her ear by her dashing beau, a handsome young man in a well-cut brown suit with an eye-catching red tie. They are standing in the garden of a French chateau (likely a studio background but we can always dream), in front of a vintage mint-green garden bench. There are pink climbing roses everywhere and you can imagine their light fragrance sweetly surrounding this courting couple on an idyllic summer afternoon. You can download the free high-res 4" x 6" @ 300 ppi JPEG without a watermark here. Great for a Valentine's Day greeting or to embellish a nostalgia-themed scrapbook page.
