Living Artfully – Chapter Five

The wrap up

It’s been a pleasure to write the blogs this week for Saks Galleries. Being here at the gallery everyday, I truly appreciate that my life is filled with passion. Art Passion, what a great way to live life. I’m humbled by it all. This place feeds the soul, the visual delights, the heady conversations or the simple conversations about living in the moment, it’s important. As Americans, it’s hard for us to really think about ourselves. We are a society of hard working, caring, driven people.

The conversations I heard from patrons today while Andi took a break from her demonstration, were, “…I just couldn’t do that. She’s amazing.” How beautiful.” Or my favorite - …I’m not creative at all.” But what I know after all these years of living and working in the art world, we are all creative. We just need to give ourselves permission to explore. We need to stay passionate, stay connected. We need to be present and stop long enough to live artfully. Enjoy life.

Our dialogue started out this week with a question, how do we live Living Artfully? My job is a constant artful endeavor at Saks Galleries, with new works being delivered by our artists, new exhibitions and salons to develop each week. But what if I didn't have this position, what then? I'd still search for the grace in life, still absorb the light, work at filling my life with joy.
