Art has the power to change lives.
Please picture this ~
A young, college student on a traveling scholarship walks into a museum exhibition hall. The walls are white and illuminated by a warm glow streaming down from skylights. The paintings on the walls are by the French Impressionist, Claude Monet. They depict flowers, landscapes, and garden scenes; captured in amazing, vivid, vibrant hues.
The young women is awestruck. Her heart races as she marvels at these masterpieces. She studies the brushstrokes..... the color combinations..... and tries to hold all these images in her mind and heart ~ forever.
She already knew that she loved all the ingredients that made great art;
pattern, line, design, form, texture, and color.
But, at this moment color became her muse.
A muse that she would walk hand in hand with along the path of art.
This young woman was me, a zillion years ago.
And yes, the gift of art does indeed have the power to change lives!
Has art touched your life in humble or profound ways?
Wishing you, always, a happy and art-filled life,
