Seven Words

It's been a while since I participated in Photo Art Friday, but this week's theme interested me:
 
This week you can use the prompt to compose a seven word sentence that describes your life or experience or process as an artist (be it a photographer, painter, mixed media artist, digital artists, whatever ...) and marry your sentence to a piece of photo art that somehow illustrates your sentence.
 
This must be my favorite picture of myself - it keeps showing up in my art!  I didn't think long before "Art opens my eyes to the world" popped into my head.  Below are the two photos I used to build my image:
 
Lighthouse along the Portuguese coast, taken from Tropic Moon's deck
Me, on the island of St. Maarten in the Caribbean, circa 1980

BEautimous!! I love how you "married" your photos and then "married" your words. May they ALL live happily ever after!!

So evocative, really.
