Many of my students are outside their comfort zones while in my class and each wants to paint their very best painting, so I find they stress making straight lines, color inside the lines, add detail everywhere.... many of the lesson I teach AGAINST.
If I have a motto, it is "There is beauty in imperfection."
Today I learned a new word,
It is the Japanese aesthestic or world view that is described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, or incomplete."
It also means that everything has a season. It doesn't last forever. Love it for what it is or is not. Whenever it is or is not.
Wabi-sabi is my auspicious word of the year. My theme. I guess it always has been. I just didn't know it existed until today.
Happy New Year!!!
