All of us have 'stuff'. Lots of stuff. What I try to do is pull together the stuff that looks good together. Usually it is spread around the house and one isn't seeing how those things can relate and create some WOW!
After bringing home these great tulips which were 'wow' in themselves, I put the glittery cloth out, found the vase that is gilded with silver, picked up a leftover bow from a gift that was laying on a side table, re-tied it around the vase, and placed the candle sticks with new yellow tapes to each side. Well that was very attractive, but that evening, when it had gotten dark, I turned on the overhead light and then we really had WOW.
As a full-time artist I see the interweavings of life and art all around me every day and in countless ways. It is so much a part of how I consider things, how I do things, how I think about things, how I live my life, etc. that I decided to write about it. It only occurred to me in recent years that the way I see things is NOT how most other people do. And because I was raised in a family of artists, none of this has seemed to be the least bit out of the ordinary. But it is. And it is something worth sharing so that maybe others who find my blog may look at the world from a new point of view - that of the creative soul who superimposes their own aesthetics on their interaction with others and with life in general.
