Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
Of leaving youth, I typically have no regrets. Periodically, I think of the exuberance of first time discoveries. And, I miss that it happens less often than 30 years ago. But a treasure of art is that it reminds—the first time I heard the tenor/baritone duet from Bizet’s Pearl Fishers, the first time I saw an O’Keefe iris, and the epiphany that some relationship, some influence had been shared between Edward Weston and Georgia O’Keefe. Of course, there had been a meeting and relationships involving Alfred Steiglitz, the photography, art promoter, and O’Keefe husband. A shared interest, passion, and obsession for the infinite detail of simply elegant subjects. A chambered nautilus, green pepper, twisted root vegetable — and this simply beautiful cabbage leaf.
