Personal Canvas Art

To Thy Own Self Be True

by Terre Fry

Colorful canvas art created by and for Terre Fry, featuring a butterfly, doilies and flowers with the sentiment "It's time to bealieve in love myself".

This year I told myself I was going to believe in myself and I was going to start to love…me! I give so much of myself to everyone I sometimes forget that I too am important, so with this year of change I too need to change too. I made this wall canvas to remind myself….it’s time!
