To me, harmony is best described as a perfect balance of components that work together in symmetry to create a collective idea. It's beautiful to gaze upon a masterpiece that is so structurally sound. Claude Monet's "The Waterlily Pond, Harmony in Pink," is one of my favorite pieces of art because it exemplifies feelings of serenity while simultaneously making you feel as if you were standing in the exact location of the painted scene. The oil painting consists of a Japanese footbridge overlooking what appears to be a marshland full of hanging moss trees that are made up of every shade of green that you could ever imagine.
An unusual thing about this painting is that despite the title, there is very little use of pink hues within the artwork. Regardless of the intent behind the picture, the viewer may wonder why Monet made the decision to do this due to trouble seeing the "Harmony in Pink," portion of the piece.
Ironically enough, my family and I just moved from Vermont to Florida this past summer to a community called, "Harmony." A change of scenery had been in discussion for a couple of years amongst my family. The moving process was difficult, and it took patience for us to realize that it was the right thing to do. In the end, everything was perfectly balanced and worked together to achieve one ultimate goal. It was not long until we began seeing signs from God that we needed to take the opportunity and relocate.
Just like the painting, we may question why the little details are not clear upon first glance, but the Master Artist always has a plan in revealing it to us.
