Make Your Life More Colorful

Where do we find the art – the beauty – in our lives?  Sometimes it is in a lovely painting.  Sometimes it is in a sunset or a wonderful landscape.  Sometimes it is in the faces of the people we love.  Art and beauty are everywhere.  We just must take the time to look. Art…
