Blog / 2016 / The Link between Beauty and Death
August 8, 2016
For more about why I don’t shave my legs, check out this vlog. I talk more about sunsets in this video about being a painter of sunsets.
I get why this image of a bug that got stuck in seaweed is not as emotionally pleasing as the live one below.
And though I’ve had two major surgeries to treat my endometriosis, both times I was terrified to be put under. In other words, I am by no means suggesting that I have reached any kind of enlightened state with regards to my own mortality. Still, I like that I can find the beauty in things that many other people find ugly, hard, or inappropriate. In fact, I work at cultivating this searching sense of beauty.
For example, I love this image for itself, but also for the context in which it was created. I discovered the mouse skeleton as I was dealing with all this.
