About the Design

comments from Julie:

I wanted to create an art piece that could serve as a bold daily reminder to appreciate that beauty is a worthy end in itself. Though Emerson's quote rhymes, I didn't want this piece to be overly poetic since the man was not a poet and his aims far more pragmatic.

Thanks, ladies. I'm second-guessing the lettering, honestly, wondering if it's not spare enough. Might submit a second version but I'm not sure... I'm working on something else first anyway. :)
