“Find things beautiful as much as you can, most people find too little beautiful.” -Van Gogh
I went to see the Beyond Van Gogh presentation last week with my husband and friends and found it amazing. The immersive show has been traveling around the country for the last several years, attracting many people to the opportunity to experience Van Gogh’s inspiring life and art. The photo is us, bathed in some of the colors of the exhibition.
There were many quotes by “Vincent,” but I especially liked the one above because it was such an essential part of his life. He looked for beauty everywhere and clearly found it. That’s why many of his paintings are of normal working people and their homes and gardens instead of the rich and famous.
I also believe that we are surrounded by beauty if we only open our eyes to it. I feel fortunate, in my own way and in a different medium, to try to share that beauty with the world.
I bet you share it in your way, too.
