How looking at paintings make me happy

Looking at paintings make me happy.
 
When I look at a beautiful painting, I am delighted. I surrender myself to its charms, indulging myself as long as I can in its company. 
 
When I look at a painting that I do not know what is happening, I am amused.  I simply enjoy its strangeness instead of trying to figure out its meaning.
 
When I look at a painting that is scary or sad, I am glad. I take the opportunity to be grateful for all that I am now. 
 
When I look at paintings, I look at them with my heart, not with my head.  I take the chance to give myself a break from my busy mind.  With less thinking and more feeling, it seems easier to be happy.
 
Go forth, look at paintings and be happy!
