Art and Beauty Tuesday--Beauty in the Everyday

This is a bit of a departure for Art and Beauty Tuesday, but I think it is important to note that beauty can surround us in the mundane as much as in the sublime. Beauty need not be contained only in so-called "fine art". Art is something everyone can and should participate in. It is important to think outside the box.

I was unable to find the artist who painted these shoes with the image of the night sky, but I was delighted to have found them.

Surround yourself with beauty.

I hope you enjoy.

Oh, I want these shoes! I agree, art is everywhere. I see it in nature as well. Life is full of beauty, if we only open our eyes.

I thought you might like these shoes! I could see you and your dd wearing them!

Love those shoes! My favorite color and so beautifully decorated.

I think hand-crafted and decorated every day items are little sparkles of beauty in the dross of daily life.

I do too, 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
