This morning I stepped outside just to see the world awaken. I looked up and saw a rainbow — not a rain drop was in the air — just a few clouds — What was happening was, the sun raising in the east stuck the clouds in the west and there it was – ………
a rainbow. WOW! Art in nature!
Out on my bike I saw another object of art. The wind blew over the tree — The soil was moist and the roots were strong — and years later this is what the tree looked like. — WOW an art object in nature.
Somehow this made me wondered how many hours do we spend creating design art to promote a product or to “enhance nature”
For each piece of art, a human creatively thought, made a made a sketch, gathered material, created an object, stood back and re-studied, ask friends what they thought, re-designed — Lot of hours.
Since I spent an hour on my bike thinking about art this morning, I bet I will notice it a lot more next time I go out and about.
So, hey Kids – give it a try, take an hour to be obsessed with the design of something from time to time, maybe front doors, or hood ornaments, or tee shirts, or holiday decorations, anything — then see if you notice more the next time you go out and about. OK, you have my suggestion for the day.
Here are a few photos of “art” from my bike trip this morning:
I took almost 40 photos this morning — think about the effort it took to create each design and what the creator went through to build that which I saw. Hope they each had as much fun creating as I did looking!
