Emerging Voices – the book, the storyart
by Laurel D. Rund
I love quotes! Collect them, save them, use them to inspire myself and others. One of my favorite quotes “A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song” (Chinese proverb) held particular meaning to me as I was creating my first book “Emerging Voices”. I knew I didn’t have an answer, but nothing was going to stop me from singing my song. This quote also inspired me to create the bird which graces each page of my book (see below). She makes my heart sing!
When I sell my book Emerging Voices in person, I include that quote with my autograph with the additional words ”go sing your song!”
My love of quotes found its way into my artwork in the form of story art cards. They can be found on my Fine Art America gallery. A few samples are shown below. Enjoy! Laurel
