#18 – Art – Life Is Better When You Find It

Hobby #18 of 139 – Art!  Life is so much better when we have an appreciation of art.  You don’t need to go to school or even be talented to appreciate art.  In fact, art in my opinion is even better when we discover something that wasn’t even intended to be “art”  Take this picture above for example.  This is in the paint section of an art store that someone just splashed on there so you could see how the paint blends.  Nothing more than a sample.  Its only half the size of the palm of your hand.  But look at it!  I just had to take a picture of it with my Nikon D3100.  I always adore how well black and red go together.  But notice the white as well!  It really drives your eye even more to the center of the little painting.

To me when I see this, I see the “Eye of Sauron”.  You know, that eye on top of the tower in Lord of the Rings that longs for the ring.  It’s not obviously that, but that’s half the fun of appreciation art. It really is the little things in life.  Life is better when you can enjoy the little things in life, such as hidden art gems.

    We love her, and will only say fantastic thnigs! I’ve never had to work so closely with another teacher before, and she has been so helpful to me. I love that she takes ideas I offer and run with them, and that she offers ideas right back!
