I started Good News Monday because I think it's good practice to look around and spot the good news in your life each day. It's a sort of "stop and smell the roses" philosophy. I've featured acts of generosity, kindness and heroism. All of which qualify as big-time good news, indeed. Sometimes, however, the good news is not an act. Sometimes it's simply that something (or someone) exists in our daily lives.
One of those things that I have been thinking about lately is art. The city in which I live has a thriving arts community. There are studios, galleries, lots of public art and even a massive art museum struggling to stay solvent. The truth is that it's not easy to make a living as an artist. Their love of making thought-provoking, one-of-a-kind art supersedes the desire to get rich. As one who does not have a talent for drawing , painting, photographing or sculpting, I'm certainly one who appreciates the good news that working artists who do possess true talent are out there doing what they do.
NOTE: Although this blog focuses on visual art that adorns homes, offices, public buildings and especially, parks and city sidewalks, no offense is meant to musicians, actors, poets of other kinds of artists. There will be other Good News Mondays.
