Adjusted To Beauty March 14, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

The definition of beauty is highly subjective. Nevertheless, let’s just admit the fact that we all want IT, and need IT. We want to make beautiful pages, journals, art, beautiful human connections, beautiful days, etc. We are in constant search for, and intuitively geared toward beauty. The truest beauty though, is achieved, when we just forget about IT.

Speaking of beauty, found abundance of it a few weeks ago at An Artful Journey, an art retreat held in the Santa Cruz mountains, where I taught a 3-day nature journal workshop.

Come find beauty in Artfest next month. A beautiful art retreat in beautiful Port Townsend, in Washington state. I’ll be teaching 3 classes: A Deck of Roses, Roots and Shoots, and The Art of Correspondence.

A new beautiful site is up for October’s Journalfest where I’ll be teaching: Face Lift, Text & Texture, and True Colors.

Also check out my workshop schedule for the next 3 months in Southern California and request to be on my students’ email list to receive monthly detailed information.

Here is to beauty, in all its forms. May we all connect in mysterious and beautiful ways.
