"....it is always good to keep your eyes wide open, because you will never know what you will discover. The drive to live life more alertly being an instinctive need, whether you are an artist by trade or by desire, the art of seeing well is a necessary skill, which fortunately can be learned" - Michael Kimmelman chief art critic for the New York Times from his book,"The Accidental Masterpiece".
Objects from nature that I have found on my walks - simple but beautiful - peach pits, burrs, cicadas, milkweed and animal bones have been elevated to relics such as saint's bones were in the Middle Ages. These objects have been placed in reliquaries and decorated with brocades and jewels to show reverence for the beauty in everyday objects from nature.
