To Live with Beauty

This world is brutal.

It’s gritty and exhausting and can rip your heart out everyday.

It’s also exhilarating, mysterious, resilient, and deeply good.

We, each of us, live in the tension of these truths everyday.

IMG_2635Part of my work in this world is to notice,

to simply attend to beauty.

To tend it, and with some measure of grace, to make it.

My friend and fellow artist Julia Brucker is very, very good at this.

She makes achingly beautiful abstractions, which are drenched in science and nature. They are lit from within her own experience of this heartbreaking, stunning world we’re all apart of.

She also keeps a blog about living with beauty. Julia has an ability to scrape the surface of this world and find gold. Her work, her life does this.

I am honored to have my work featured on her blog this week.

Read it. Every page Julia has curated is an open palm with grace inside.
