Palette Knife Painting of Roses and Wine Glasses

"Roses and Wine Glasses"
6 x 6 inches, Oil on board

I just finished reading The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

Here are some quotes from the book:

"Don't Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life."

"Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering."

The four agreements are quite simple and yet we tend to forget to follow them. I really recommend this book.
