Day 26: Something Beautiful-Verona on January 25

Untouched, candid, and subtlely vibrant. This is the world that Bea saw upon waking yesterday. Bea Neal is a dear friend, artist, and gifted photographer. I snatched this photo from her Dog-in-the-Hole Studio blog yesterday. You are looking at the sunrise yesterday in Verona, Wisconsin. These are the the colors that have inspired artists of all kinds through the ages. How can anyone begin the day with sights set on this sky and not be driven to interpret such glory in paint, sculpture, fabric, paper, glass or whatever lay around them? Memorize these colors. Watch for them today. Note where you see them. The wallpaper, paint, fabric, dinnerware, auto detailing, and anything else you encounter. Imagine these things being the canvas for an artist and this sunrise being the palette.
