I might as well attract the slings and arrows right off the bat…If there is one thing that really burns me, it’s self-important and self-appointed guardians of art. No one has a right to tell you what is art, good or bad. Especially how you should look at or judge it.
Everyone feels art, to a greater or lesser degree, it’s called LIFE. If you look at a new car model and it makes you feel good, that is art appreciation, as is the arrangement of a garden or even how a walkway is laid out. Life is art, it’s just how we sculpt it. Each one of us is a work of art, taking a (hopefully long) life span to complete.
Look closely at someone you care about, appreciate the artistry of their life. It’s your appreciation of their sculpted soul which drew you to them…a work in progress, as we all are.
