wabi sabi





I was thinking of WABI SABI yesterday. What is it? A Japanese principle, that, in my mind, signifies natural imperfection, beauty, simple and modest and heartfelt work. There is a lot of stuff swirling around in my head lately, and the idea is, slow down, try it out, be patient, work things through naturally. The creative process to me is step by step through working, although I see some artists who do a lot of staring and thinking. No. New ideas and making things for me are about the experiments that explore the idea and move ahead. Be calm, carry on :)

It's in the step by step "just doing it" that I find the inspiration continues to flow.

Keep on keepin' on, Dude! I love what you do!

Love the doggie escapades, always a needed laugh and smile. Totally agree with you on the Art psyche, patience with oneself is always the hardest thing to accomplish.

I do the same as you. Just push through. I jump in and figure it out from there. Which probably isn't the best way to go about things, but I'm not really a planner. I just attack and try to sort things out.
