Creating Beauty

This Christmas, while I was out shopping for my family, I picked up a little gift for myself.

This engagement calendar is filled with beautiful paintings by the visionary artist Susan Seddon Boulet. She created well over 2000 pieces of art in her 56 years of life and 53 of her paintings are reproduced in this calendar. Each week of the year has it’s own painting accompanied by an insightful quote.

I want to share with you this week’s painting and quote.

Mask Maker, 1975

“To be surrounded by beautiful things has much influence upon the human creature: to make beautiful things has more.”

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Hopefully this will inspire you to create something beautiful this week.

And please remember,

even when it seems there’s no time in the day to create anything,

let alone a thing of beauty,

Your smile is always a masterpiece.
