Wabi Sabi Wednesday



When Jade's name came out of the hat, he had a special request. And this is when I really began to like Jade a lot. He's an artist, a client of mine. But his request told me that we could also be friends. You see he asked for a bit of Wabi Sabi.



When given a choice, he went to my blog to see what he might select, "Anything?"
" Anything, just pick it," I said.
"Could you do me some Zen Blue Lines?", Jade asked.
I smiled and thought," ahhh, he gets it. "



It will hang in his new home between the two paintings of mine that he owns. So I looked at this one, the first one he bought.



And looked at this one, the one that followed. To see what I could learn. Jade left it up to me which pastry to paint. "Surprise me. I will be thrilled with anything you do." (See, a very likable guy.)



Like stepping stones in a zen garden, which one goes in between? Can you guess why I chose the one I did, the one in the photo at the top?

Has Hokusai been visiting your studio?
That blue drawing is Zen-Heaven!
What good taste Jade has...
Your glorious blackberry tart looks like it walked out of Petrossian's window.
YUM
