Beauty Is Everywhere...

If you really look and pay attention, you can find beauty in unlikely places. Long ago, back in art school, I used to use a little viewfinder (kind of like looking through a slide frame) that would help me frame a composition. Sometimes we're so obsessed with speed and efficiency that we miss some of the beauty in life. Sometimes it requires stopping and restricting your view though. Something that is a little piece of a larger system has a beauty all its own. Here's an example of a crop of a larger doll dress - the embroidery on the hem. Isn't it beautiful? Even the tear in the fabric has a kind of elegance to it. Really looking at things, being mindful of them, can lower your blood pressure, can ease tension. And it can give ideas for other creative ventures.

Find something in your house now and really look at it! :-)
