Believe by George Fairchild


Acrylic on canvas board, 14x18"

The world can be a crazy and cynical place…we are often confronted with misunderstanding and doubt…mistrust and suspicion…anger and hatred. It is exactly at those times that we need something to hold onto…to help put things in perspective…something to believe in…


Believe in compassion…in kindness and love…
Those purest of virtues…it’s what makes us special…

Believe in mankind and its capacity for good…
And in the inherent greatness that we all possess…

Believe in yourself…your gifts…your potential…
Never think that you can’t when you know that you can…

Believe in life and the wonders around us…
Take time every day to appreciate its beauty…

Believe in the future…that anything is possible…
Find hope in knowing that great things await you…

Believe in these things, but most of all,
Believe in your dreams…they really can come true…

I can see how much fun you are having. I feel like I am in a confetti storm. Love it!

Beautiful ,,George,,,In a troubled time,, one can look out into the world either of two ways,,, One can either see negative,,and drown in their troubles. Or one can look out and see all of the wonderful little things out there,,that remind us, of why we are here. I can't really put it into words,,when 'one' feels content, in this moment, All I know is,;that in those moments,there is a spiritual atmosphere,,so beautiful,,that I know ,why,I do believe,, 5***** Sincerely, Doris

My dearest funny George, again you prove what a wonderful master of colour and detail you are...your painting is quite hypnotic, I can see myself really getting lost in it, the longer I look at it. Love the title as well, suits your "happy" colours and really seems positive. Makes me wonder what was the biggest belief that gave you inspiration for this piece... belief in happiness? hope? love? faith? hmmmmm, I wonder... anyway...sending a big hug, G. S. (hope you figured the initials ahahahha)

I struggle with backgrounds - getting it to relate to the subject etc.. do you have any suggestions to make it easier?
Pretty horse! Backgrounds are just that Jackie "in the back"...... you don't really want to draw the eye there - just a backdrop to 'present' your subject. ... view answer
