Spread #13 – Yes We Can August 10, 2008

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

No matter which side you are on, you would surely agree that the phrase ‘Yes, we can!’ is a good one. The three little words encompass big concepts such as hope, unity, empowerment, confidence, and determination. Always positive, it’s open to interpretation. Here is mine, as it relates to my personal visual understanding of this phrase.

I love the artwork you make.
Everything is beautiful, even the crooked door and the leaning house, together, woven with words, the home stays strong and beautiful, and that’s what I love about your work: Things you wouldn’t expect are put together, and miraculously, they are beautiful.
🙂 Thank you for bringing this piece of art into my world. 🙂

This one shows that anything is possible. And if we are confident in ourselves then the rest will follow. Yes We Can! Good Job!

The poster is great! and Ilan is right, if we believe that we can and are confident, the rest will follow! I think Obama is the best candidate for the US Oval Office. Check out his Blueprints for Change!

Out of all of your work, this is definitely one of my favorites. The composition of beautiful, the words, inspiring. The two different images seem to meld together into one; perfect, beautiful work of art.
It really is true, what you say. How the few words, ‘yes we can!’ are good. It doesn’t matter who’s side you are on. It doesn’t matter what beliefs you have. So long as you can stand tall and say something positive, something good. Then that is worth fighting for–don’t you think? The ability to have confidence in yourself and in others is a beautiful thing; something you have captured within this beautiful piece of art. I love it! Congratulations on making this wonderful piece.

This is great.
It is in such a contrast to a poster we have on our wall in the kitchen, called: “Ja, Maar…” (Yes, but…)
Under this statement, there are about 200 excuses people give when they need to do something or to take a decision.
I love this one! It has a great spirit.

It is always a wonderful thing to have faith and the three little words “yes you can” is something that we need to say and believe more often.

To have faith in our collective ability to create unity is such a wonderful concept that I need to sit with this for a moment.

Thank you again for inspiring thought and belief.

This just shows how immense your talents and skills are. ^^ Wonderful work, and sorry I haven’t commented in a while. I love how bright and positive the message is, very simple and inspiring, and yet it can delve deeper than that, because there are so many meanings to the one phrase, “yes we can…”
It’s very empowering in the way that it generates so much warmth and hope to anyone you say it to. I believe that that one phrase can give confidence to almost anyone you meet. It’s nice to know that people believe in you through and through.
