Art and Beauty Tuesday

This is Loading Dock, a water color by Mary Sheehan Winn.   I was first attracted to the colors in this painting--especially the blues and purples.  The beauty here belies the subject matter.  A simple loading dock is seen as something beautiful by the diffused lighting and the bright colors.

For some reason, I think it is the loading dock at a zoo. Not sure why ... maybe all the greenery? Beautiful colors!

Omg, your word verification is: ARTation. (Caps my emphasis!).

I like the idea of a zoo!

Your word verification the other day was something that sounded distinctly eastern. Very appropriate!

Really lovely colors. Good art takes the commonplace and elevates it to beauty. It is a great gift to see beyond the ordinary. It is something I am trying to learn.

I think that is one of the cornerstones of spirituality, Barbara.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
