    Exquisite beauty!

    Thought that we needed a thread to share our favourite links and photos of exquisite beauty to bring joy to others.

    I think this artist is amazing. Can you imagine the work involved! Would love to visit Valencia and see it.

    Amazing, the cross stich roses! I love juxtaposed artistry—needlework and buildings are great! It reminds me of all the knitted cosies that were around trees the past few years. I never figured out what that was about but they were a lot of them.

    I just bought a print of a wee Scottish cottage:

    Very nice! I would worry about the beautiful cross stitch being negatively effected by weather, but still beautiful.

    I've curated thousands of pictures of different art from prehistoric to modern illustration, and haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the loveliness that people create.

    I love the simplicity of this, and the suggestion of light.

    Another clever artist. He reminds me of the Eastern European artist that has painted her whole neighborhood in bright colors and designs, sowing beauty like Johnny Appleseed sowed fruit.
