LP Thrift Originals bio picture
  • Lauren Thrift

    Original acrylic paintings full of bright colors, clean shapes, and much joy.

    Bright colors make me smile. There is something about a big orange sunrise, a vast blue ocean, a deep green leaf, or an intense pink peony that fills me with warmth. I try to use the brilliance of color in my paintings to create a visual happiness.

    I hope you will enjoy viewing some of these colorful paintings. Check back from time to time to see what's new, feel free to share with friends, or subscribe in the sidebar below to receive occasional updates by email. Paintings are added several times a month. Anything added is sure to be filled with bright colors and much joy! Thanks - LPT

Small circle- circle of concern;  Medium circle – circle of influence;  Large circle – circle of life;  A good little reminder that God has all our circles in the palm of His hand.  No need to fret or worry—He’s got all your circles.
