ART= inspiration, emotions, wonderland

      Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging symbolic elements in a way that influences and affects the senses, emotions, and intellect.

     I could tell you that art plays a large part in making our lives infinitely rich. Imagine, just for a minute, a world without art! (You may think "So what?" but please consider the impact that lack of graphics would have on your favorite video game.) Art stimulates different parts of our brains to make us laugh or incite us to riot, with a whole gamut of emotions in between. Art gives us a way to be creative and express ourselves. For some people, art is the entire reason they get out of bed in the morning. You could say "Art is something that makes us more thoughtful and well-rounded humans."
      On the other hand, art is such a large part of our everyday lives that we may hardly even stop to think about it. Look at the desk or table where you are, right this minute. Someone designed that. It is art. Your shoes are art. Your coffee cup is art. All functional design, well done, is art. So, you could say "Art is something that is both functional and (hopefully) aesthetically pleasing to our eyes."
     You might say "Art is in a constant state of change, so nobody can really pin down what it is." The constant change part is true, but the not pinning it down part is going to get you a bad grade. It may even raise a comment or two about your being some sort of wisenheimer. Don't go this route.
     You might even say "Art is subjective, and means something different to every single person on earth." This, too, is the truth. I would caution against this approach, however, as it would require a stack of paper from here to the moon to cite all of your 6.8 billion references.
     Now, everything just stated has elements of truth, but is largely based on opinion. Form your own opinion,state your mind, let the emotions flow.....
      Try to live in color, find "joie de vivre" around everything you do, and be true to yourself.
     All these photos ,images, quests for beauty and art make my think of simple words like: lemon love, hills of caramel,sweet corn poppy, lullabies and love... One of my favorite blog is "A thing for", which is amazing in gathering photos and ideas together and create the most astonishing views of art. Follow them below:
