Ordinary to Extraordinary

June 2, 2010

Our mailbox is covered with lovely purple flowers (clematis), and it’s just spectacular to see.  I was thinking this morning while rowing as I looked out the window, that the flowers made something so ordinary (mailbox), extraordinary.

I believe that is what artists try to do as well.  Take something ordinary, like a shape, color, or face and turn it into something extraordinary.

A worthy endeavor, indeed…
