Art & Beauty - What Makes Something Beautiful to You?

For this assignment, I have selected the most spectacular work of art - The Grand Canyon in Arizona. To me, it displays and represents the majestic power of Mother Nature over the course of many, many years. My family and I have visited this national, natural treasure on two separate occasions. At both times,  I have experienced a spiritual serenity; a feeling of calm. Depending on the time of day and the height of the seasonal sun, there is a vast display of colors represented. Pictures do not do it justice, it must be seen to be believed. It is truly a "work in progress". For me, art needs to have an emotional connection. I need to feel it deep inside me. I find these feelings through nature whether it's looking at waterfalls, animals in their habitat,  flowers, mountains, or our vast array of bodies of water.
