We’ve passed the Solstice – the days are getting longer now.
It is the season to celebrate the return of light.
Landscape painters study light with particular scrutiny and learn to see beauty in all the nuances. I know you’re busy this week, but when you need to drive or walk, study the light. Even if you just have time for a glance out the window, ask “What is uniquely beautiful about this particular light?”
If it’s gloomy where you stand, look for beauty anyhow – there may be a rainbow or light on the distant mountains. See the subtle harmonies in the muted earth tones – they are just as much a part of this glorious life as the fruitful greens of summer.
