Life is art.
Although it's nice, we don't need hours of free time and endless art supplies to explore our creativity and to make things of beauty. Life can be art. Life is a gift, and how beautiful it is. It's all in our perspective... choosing to see life as an opportunity - and choosing to live artfully. This week, I've chosen to see life as art.
The simple, little things in your every day life add up to make the big things.
They can be your art. And this everyday art? It can make your days ever so beautiful.
Art is a new, unique manicure... like wearing a love letter on your hands.
It's the way you display your jewelry and decorate a little shelf.
And the way you pick out your Christmas tree.
Art can simply be the way you fold your towels.
Or the way you love spending the day with your mama.
Art is in the way you stand in your closet and choose what to wear on an ordinary day.
And the morning ritual of spooning richly fragrant coffee grounds into a filter.
It is the way you sit and read, write, think, & sip Holiday Tea at a bookstore on a rainy day.
And art can simply be hanging a string of old fashioned Christmas bulbs along your vanity mirror. It's the perfect lighting for makeup, after all. (Ignore my dirty mirror. I am.)
The other day, I read these words by the great artist, Van Gogh.
