Wouldn’t you like to become more aware of the beauty of the ordinary?
If yes, this blog is a great place to start.

I’m not talking grand and pompous beauty. No, this blog is about learning to see the humble beauty that exists right beside you. In your everyday places.


Like, light on the white bark of a birch tree. Like the reflections of reed in the water. Or, like the first flowers in spring.

In our busy lives, days easily blend together. Even weeks and months. When you look back, you can’t separate one day from another. They are all the same. One gray mass. Isn’t that terrifying?

Sensing beauty enriches your life and it makes one day stand out above others. You may still not remember what weekday it was, but you remember the exact place and feeling. Every time you pass that special place, you remember. The beauty stays with you!

I’m very sensitive to beauty and when I find it, I paint it. I want my art to bring this subtle beauty to a more conscious part of your mind and I hope you’ll start appreciating things you barely noticed before. This will add to your happiness!

So, let me sprinkle a little everyday beauty to your life, yes? I update this blog once a week. If you want more, let’s be pals on Facebook too!


If you fall madly in love with one of my paintings, you’re lucky! Most of them are available for purchase in my Etsy shop. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding my paintings.

  1. Hello Heidi ~

    I love your blog here on WordPress and so am nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award!!

    Congrats and Enjoy! You do have an exceptional site ~ and I so enjoy your work and insights!



    1. Hey Carla, thank you for the nomination 🙂 I’m so flattered. I have moved my site so it’s now on a self-hosted site at heidihjort.com (I should probably shut down or redirect from my old site..) Is it possible you link to the new site instead?
