Simple things that stir ideas, awe, and gratitude.

When I took art appreciation class in the community college I wrote my final essay on Mondrian. Studying his progression as an artist I appreciated painting just with primary colors or geometric patterns of different colors.
I was particularly impressed when I saw cubism by Picasso and Braque. Cutting a form to pieces and putting the parts together again is very clever, an imaginative leap.
The art classes opened my eyes to a different way of looking at objects, to take time to look and be aware of my surroundings.
