  1. I buy a stack of postcards from every gallery I visit. I stick them to the back of my kitchen door and have daily fixes of beautiful pieces. Art makes me very happy indeed and i agree with all the tips.

  2. Your great point about appreciating the artistic quality of high-end goods in stores led to another thought. In Nature itself, we can be full of wonder and appreciation for the infinite order and beauty, the esthetic of Creation itself. To focus on the experience of nature, try taking a walk in the woods while listening to some music. We are always surrounded by His art. Have to say also that plugging the good old-fashioned library always resonates! Keep going with your great writing! Cheers!

  3. I just discovered your blog and agree 100%. I’m an art historian and teach art appreciation; bringing the visions of artists into our everyday routines can change our lives.
