Art Opens Our Eyes

The Most Wonderful Invention

The most wonderful invention of the last quarter century was the phone with a built-in camera. It encourages us to open our eyes with a discernment that has never been truly available to the public.

In short, it allows everyone an opportunity to see the world with its various manifestations and see the poetry that surrounds us. For the artist, it makes the world a palette of imagery.

An Important Lesson—Colors Change

Colours change: in the morning light, red shines out bright and clear and the blues merge into their surroundings, melting into the greens; but by the evening the reds loose their piquancy, embracing a quieter tone and shifting toward the blues in the rainbow. Yellow flowers remain bright, and white ones become luminous, shining like ghostly figures against a darkening green background.” ~ Rosemary Verey, The Scented Garden, 1981 (source)

Sometimes Enough Said

I can’t improve on what is already said. Wishing you a good day along a new path.

Reality Looking Back at You

Teaching, Family, Community, and art. Why does art come last? Isn’t the list backwards?” ~ Bill Hendricks
