"The Woods Would Be Very Silent..."

"Use what talents you possess. The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that song best." -Henry van Dyke 

I've been wanting to paint this quote all summer and finally took the time to do it! I can't wait to hang this in my classroom above my desk!

I've never attempted to paint a bird and I got very frustrated during the process. I'm still not 100% happy with it. But, then  the quote reminded me that I don't have to be the best painter! My students will think it's fabulous because I painted it myself!


  1. You did a beautiful job!!! This is one of my favorite quotes to use!! Have a great year!!! I'm looking forward to reading your blog!

  2. Thanks! I hope you have a great year as well!
