Picasso said, “You don’t make art, you find it” and while I realize his words had another meaning, that is just what we did. Today’s Daily Prompt could not have been better timed for me. In our recent hunt for a new home we looked at many, each offering something unique. However, when it came to narrowing it down only one truly felt like home. The views alone were art in and of itself, every window showcasing either a city landscape or Mother Nature’s oceanic masterpiece and that was just what our eyes feasted on outside. Inside, the walls surrounded us with artful displays that spoke to us. Truth be told I’m not well versed when it comes to art, but it doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate beauty and talent when I see it through the artist’s eye. Walking through this home, I had a different frame of mind. It felt warm and inviting. Even my children have found an appreciation for art, making their own small contributions to the walls, further enhancing the feeling of home.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” ―Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso – I couldn’t possibly agree more with this quote. Every piece of art I’ve ever created made me feel rejuvenated and revitalized; it made me feel as if a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.
I love that quote. I feel the same way when I write.
Yes, absolutely. All forms of art seem to have that effect on the soul.
