The Beholder’s Eye is the best test for Art…great art is so many things, it’s hard to pin down- The way Fabric is stretched across a bright Blue Sky or tied upon a Shoulder-
A School of Bright Fishes or a Fantasy of Wishes-
An Aardvark or an Avatar- well- that’s certainly something only a discerning Beholder’s Eye knows is Art…
A Poster, a Print or Prose… yes I think I’d pick some of those, but then again putting words together pleasantly is an Art Form to me.
No one can deny an Animal Print looks far better worn by a Zebra than a Turtleneck on a Giraffe. Who wouldn’t be charmed by a Photograph of the time an Elephant crossed the road?
The many ways Light plays upon the Water- Magical Reflections or artfully rushes in several directions…
Is it Fire, a Jeweled Crown, a Horse captured in sculptured metal- A Mural-ed Wall or Architecture?
Or surely it’s the Pleated Palm Leaves and a Flower Bed.
Mr. Disney’s Parks are a sensory overload of Magic, Music and Days. If Disney’s Art in the Parks were a Dance Studio- it would be a blend of Tap, Jazz, Soft Shoe, Waltzing Ballroom Dancers- ending with Marching Bands and Ballerinas followed by Fireworks and Classical Music – a Dance of Art, Talent and Reality laced with a heavy dose of Imagination… I suppose that Art really is a blend of expressions and impressions. If you can:
- Rest your Eyes from the Soaring Sights-
- Refrain from the Heart Racing Excitement of crowds…
- the Culinary Wonders and Flubs,
- the Snagging of Fast Passes,
- the Overload of Winding Lines, Strollers and
- Walking Miles and Miles…
Pause occasionally and Contemplate with your own Beholder’s Eye the Art of the Parks…
Love y’all, Camellia
