The Little Red Owl

DIY ideas for home, health, & life

I am very often inspired by beautiful lyrics (as you can see here).

Musicians can craft amazing sentences and it never ceases to amaze me how they capture so wonderfully what we as the human race are thinking, feeling, and doing.

I LOVE turning these lyrics into art for my home so that I am regularly reminded of whatever the lyrics are offering.

I had a red painted plain canvas at home:

Exciting photo huh?

An Over the Rhine Lyric had been stuck with me for days “Life is a beauty that’s mocking us” so I decided to add that lyric to this canvas.

I also LOVE purple so I decided to paint the canvas. Purple does not really go with my color scheme but I figured for the hallway gallery wall it would be OK.


I just painted the canvas and then wrote the lyrics on with a Sharpie. Done! This could NOT have be easier and I am happy with the results. Good enough right?


What lyrics inspire you?
