Art is a tiny bit like nature in that it too can be magical. A painting can draw you in, and make you soar. Music can change your mood and touch your soul. Poems can heal hurts. A goal that I strive for is to create paintings that have magic. Will every painting contain some magic? I hope so. Will every person be touched by every painting? Of course not.
We all have our favorites. I find magic by looking for sundogs, mushrooms, flying birds, shiny bugs, tiny delicate flowers, by watching seasons change. One of my favorite artists is Claude Monet. His water lily paintings are so calm, and beautiful. The poem The Daffodils by William Wordsworth always makes me happy.
Please share your favorite ways to find magic in nature and/or art.
