A friend shared with me tonight that The Cleveland Museum of Art in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Arts in London have organized an exhibit, Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse. This exhibit is on display now through Tuesday January 5, 2016. The exhibit is dedicated to honoring the role of gardens in the paintings of Monet and his contemporaries. Sounds like a fun road trip to me!
As soon as I read the above quote, I was in love! I have always been an admirer of Monet's work, but the the sentiments contained in his quote make my heart pitter patter.
An artist naturally pays tribute to their muse- be it the strings of their instrument, the stroke of their brush, their pen to paper, the click of their shutter, the solitude of nature, the duality of their gaze, or the simple arrangement of foreground and background. Life is always waiting to be captured in a brilliant manner.
How thoughtful and dynamic that this revered artist paid tribute to his love of the natural world. Had it not been for these gorgeous flowers, we might not know such beauty.
It is my hope that this day inspires you to notice the landscape of your life. Every speck comes into focus as you shift attention and begin to create the portrait of your life. What inspires you? Maybe begin creating space for this inspiration in your day to day life. Have fun and keep your hearts curious!
