make art. transform life.

thoughts about creativity and  art:   live your life as your work of art.

How to find the fine art in your life.

Observe!  Yes, you heard me, look around and find the little moments around corners and in the most obscure times and places! Stop as you turn the corner in the grocery store  and take in the patterns of bright red, orange and yellow colors of beets and deep green leaves in the produce section.

Take time to notice the beautiful wrinkles on the face of someone you catch sight of on the street corner. Imagine the life behind that face. Take the hands of your aunt admiring the  matters in life that those hands have articulated.

Spend a moment sitting  on the grass in the sun with your dog and watch how she observes life, waiting and watching.

Cherish each moment  with gratitude. Observing, listening and waiting is not a waste of time. It is a way of discovering where the beauty and fullness appears in your life. Make it a habit to discover it!
