Sometimes we wait for art to appear in our lives. On a wall, in a gallery, in someone else’s home. To me it appears daily. Today it appeared in this beautiful bowl that I purchased at a fund raiser for our local homeless shelter, Hospitality House. Brilliant tangerine orange and a soft celadon blue…give me that in a painting and I’m happy. Give it to me in what sits on my table in daily life, and I’m complete.
Making art a part of our daily lives is so important. From the wine glasses we choose for dinner, to the table setting and candlelight, to the color of our food, art is all around us. When we pay attention to having beauty surround us every day, whether it is on a wall, or on the table, we not only create gratitude in our hearts, but also joy in our daily lives.
