The love of art and creativity finds its way rushing through the veins of so many of us. Be it music, sculpture, poetry, music , dance, painting, or the natural wonders of this world , all is defined with the ability to calm us or make us think. The love of art is what carries me daily
I'm reading three books . The first one "The Good Book" is indeed a good book. The title is deceiving and as a painter it is the sort of book that inspires thoughts. I pick it ip and read a few pages at a time in any section of the book and it makes me think deeper about life. It's written by writers from Herodotus to Confucius, Baudelaire ,Catullus , and covers all sorts if topics. It is a very Good Book written in a format that invites one to skip around. The second book, " The Wild Braid" is so well written and thoughtful. American Poet Stanley Kunitz writes about gardening but puts such a magnificent view on the gardens he has nurtured. I would suggest everyone read this even if you don't garden as it tells a wonderful story of a poets thought process.
I love statues that offer something beautiful to look at and Washington DC 's great museums always does.
The last few paintings I love as they feel like me. She is am English painter who worked in 1920.
I have been waiting to see this particular Conductor do Holst's the Planets. Bramwell Tovey did an amazing job . NASA provided film of the planets which made the experience of sound and site tie in so effortlessly i found my mind painting . I walked to the train thinking what a wonderful mystery we are. In this huge universe here we are, a lone planet teeming with life, water , love hate, what a wonderful miracle we are. The abstract thought of how this rock we call home provides everything we can need while other planets out there are just that, rocks that are either too hot, too cold , too toxic. I find myself thinking How extraordinary it all is.
