hidden in plain view | black and white ...

visual interest on the top shelf

blatantly displayed at the entrance

artistic expression

It has surrounded us all of our lives in one fashion or another, so much so, we barely acknowledge its existence.  Like in the landscape design at the interstate exit, the craftsmanship of the doorway going into work, or the little nuances of the display shelf at the clothing store.  Art expressed with no expectation of acknowledgement.

My son has started drawing; a skill he never thought he had.  It started with successfully getting two eyes symmetrically balanced and has progressed to a face.  His excitement over this discovery has also reminded me how important it is to 'try', even when we don't think we can.
