Beauty Fills All Spaces

This post is a direct steal from my brilliant mother, watercolorist Bobbi Boyd, who wrote the following in an email this morning:

Today I read in ‘The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri, and something that caught my attention:

“Beauty is an intangible thing; can not be fixed on the surface, and the wear and tear of old age on the body cannot defeat it.

Nor will a “pretty” face make it, for “pretty” faces are often dull and empty,
and beauty is never dull and it fills all spaces
.”

Where is beauty in your life this day? In the color of water or the gleam of someone’s smile? There is so much beauty all around us; the best kind is discerned first in the heart and only later by the eye and by intellect.
