In the Eye














 
"Good Heavens! What do you mean it's UGLY!
Why I do believe it's the most beautiful painting I've ever seen in my life!"

In my opinion, the word 'ugly' in the context of expressing one's subjective judgement view of anything except when referencing actions taken by human upon humans or other living 'things', is an inappropriate use.

All experience, with aforementioned exception, has value therefore not 'ugly'.

Example: Ugly is when I wake up in the middle of the night to let my two mini-poodles, my kids, out and I stub my big toe on the leg of my wooden bed. OUCH! that's UGLY!

Beautiful? Perhaps. Whimsical and charming? Yes.

Beauty being in the eye of the beholder, and art being whatever you can get away with . . great Magpie. Great humor.
