Artist Caspar David Friedrich

So much art today is ugly, I needed a beauty fix.  This painting, by the 19th century German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich, makes me feel happy to be alive.  I'm not sure what the objective is of much of the stuff labelled "art" one sees daily on the web.  If it is to make you more depressed than you already are/were then it does accomplish that - but who wants to feel that way?

This image is from the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, an incredible art museum I wish I could get to more often.

Artist Kim Ford Kitz

Walking home from the San Anselmo library today I passed a window display with some great art by a local artist.  Between people's beautiful gardens, the local birds, and a few nice window displays it was a beautiful walk despite the grey weather.   For more of Kim Ford Kitz's art look no further.  Her website is here
