Blinded by Beauty

Yusra Qureshi

Exploring the theme of Enjoyment of Life. The inspiration for this piece stemmed from a quote I read by Hans Christian Andersen: “Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower”.

Delving into a little self-indulgence and taking the time to do things you enjoy can be viewed by many as time-wasting and an activity that should be kept to a minimum. But to adopt such a heavily work-orientated lifestyle can have a negative effect on your mental health in the long run. Taking time to explore Nature can be so beneficial for us as we can start to view the world in a more positive and caring light which encourages us to take active steps to protect and safeguard its beauty.

By making this piece I hoped to capture the essence of enjoying Nature and letting it become a beautiful part of your life. So, take some time to explore yourself, Nature and all the beauty around you on this thriving, ever-changing Earth, because you never know, you might just find yourself dancing with the flowers.
