Flowers are the Colors of Summer - my Art and Quotes of other Creative Souls

Flowers reflect the power of Summer. With a great variation of color all around me, I can almost feel an explosion of happiness and creative new feelings, that make my fingers wanna move! 

There is a deep urge in my creative soul, to catch all the beauty from all around me and paint them on paper. I am off, to get inspired and catch the spirit of summer, whether by experience endless beach walks in the morning or while discovering gorgeous landscapes of the island on bike! 

I found this wonderful quote this morning and I just love, the fact that these beautiful words are from the year 1798!

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798

Oh, I just found another beautiful quote:

"Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into."  
~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

Therefore, there are great artists out there, who will paint Flowers and seem to give them 'a soul'.
