Fine Arts Friday: Exhausted

This past week has been camp week. MTG has taken the girls to Girl Scout Twilight Camp*, and I’ve taken the boys to Cub Scout Twilight Camp. I’m so tired it hurts.

The main reason we study fine arts is to give our children a repository of beauty from which to draw. So today, I’m going to share some of the beauty I draw on when I’m tired or discouraged. And honestly, today I’m a little of both.

When I worked in Washington, DC, I would often walk back to our office from the Capitol, stopping at National Gallery of Art to soak in the beauty and wash away all the political ick. I would go see “The Voyage of Life” or some other works. Sometimes I’d sit in the atrium and just be. For a while, this picture hung in the West Wing near the atrium. It’s still one of my favorites.

This is a piece I fell in love with in a music appreciation class in college. It’s called Die Moldau by Bedřich Smetana.

These are beautiful artistic expressions, we don’t have to study them. We can just enjoy them.  What’s in your treasure chest of beauty? What painting or song  or other art do you enjoy?
