Happiness Needs No Money by African Artist Gideon Fasola

Happiness Needs No Money, Gouache painting on Card
41 cm x 61 cm, © 2015 Gideon Fasola.

Happiness is priceless– it cannot be bought. If the poor can be happy against all odds you can be happy in any unpleasant life situation. Choose to be happy and live a life of true happiness by appreciating and enjoying things around you– the sun, flowers, trees, snow, mountains, streams, fruit, voices, colours, shapes, forms, lines, words, and friends. These things cannot be purchased. But you can enjoy them and make yourself happy.

Limited edition prints here.
