Two Paintings bringing a little positivity into the world
& heads up Politicians & News Media there is Light in the World. 


"Happiness" & "Looking at the World in an Optimistic Light"

Two Text based paintings created as an antidote to those who would have us live in fear. There's a whole lot of negativity being spouted by politicians and the news media anyone would think the world is coming to an end. All I hear from them is doom and gloom. If they all lived with a bit more happiness and optimism instead of trying to terrify us with stories of pessimism and over dramatising normal life the world would be a much better place.

I notice that whilst they have an economic crisis to champion there's no mention of Flu epidemics, SARS, Tsunamis across the Atlantic, Global warming, nuclear bombs in a suitcase, Bird Flu, and what happened to the Ozone layer? Apparently there's an oil crisis too yet in actual fact there is enough oil to continue consumption at current rates for the next 40 years!

Doom mongers should each hang one of these paintings in their offices to remind them that normal people try to look to the future with optimism and live their life in happiness, despite their best efforts to the contrary. We've got rid of smallpox, routinely conduct heart transplants, live longer, no longer pour smoke out of our chimneys, we eat better, travel more and communicate and interact better that we've ever done and haven't had a world war for over 60 years, they used to be quite common you know.

So come on politicians and News Media a little more optimism please.
