Testing how the lovely blues mix and merge together.

An ‘easy’ day. A fun day.  A Sunday.

A Hint, of wabi sabi

I was planning to finish it.  To go in and paint the vase shape all the way around.

But I paused. And considered the philosophy of wabi sabi that I love.

Wabi Sabi is the idea of finding and seeing the beauty in things impermanent, imperfect and unfinished.


And so, I chose, to leave it unfinished.
