I have been pondering the word ‘Beauty’ this week. What is it? I had a lesson this week. I know someone who I have always believed is very beautiful. I saw a photo of her and was shocked as she looked very plain. Then it hit me beauty comes from the soul, it shines from the eyes, personality is intertwined with it. Photos sometimes catch it, but it depends on the skill of the photographer. But then I thought every photo of a child I have seen is always beautiful, even when they are cross eyed and angry! So a there is a certain element of our selves determines beauty. I love children so ergo all children are beautiful. There is no set formula for beauty. All I can say is the old maxim of beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we all are beautiful in different ways and to different people.
Yeah I know, I am being a bit heavy here, but it is what has been in my head this week. So my task this week was to create a journal page of a beautiful girl, the girl that resides in all of us!
Every day I pick a rose from my garden and have it on the kitchen bench, when I come out to the kitchen every morning I am greeted by a wonderful scent and great beauty. The above is today’s beauty, and it is really those colours, and the scent is very heady.
I am linking up with all the wonderful creative artists at Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kirstin as always. Have a great and beautiful week.
