SARASOTA, Fla (FOX 13) - A Sarasota woman has turned her fence into a motivational work of art.
Dana Victoria paints wooden boards with vibrant colors and inspiring quotes, hoping to give anyone passing by a little dose of positivity.
“Positive, hope, wisdom,” are the kinds of messages she tries to share with her community.
The project started about four years ago, with just a couple signs. Now, Victoria’s fence is covered with all kinds of uplifting messages that say things like, “be brave,” “keep getting up,” and “be the light.”
Every so often, when one of the boards starts to fade, Victoria says she paints a new one. According to Victoria, some people have told her they drive by on purpose to get inspired. Others have even left their own painted boards for Victoria to hang up.
“(It) brought me a lot of joy cause I’m like, ‘Okay, that’s awesome,’ it makes me inspired to keep going do more,” Victoria said.
