This painting is incorporates the idea of Japanese Kintsugi into it’s visual cues by way of gilded lines in the painting. I was considering the Zen, cycle of life and the beauty and acceptance of imperfection.

I am still exploring different possibilities with this medium and enjoying the discoveries quite a bit.

I hope you have been enjoying the summer. For me in the Pacific Northwest, hot dry summers are such a gift.
