Now that winter is in full swing, I'm trying to appreciate the beauty and make the best of it. I'm really happy with how this painting turned out today. I think it's all about the sunlight.
The trees catching the gold sunshine, finding the beauty in winter - is it kind of kintsugi?
"...kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect....
Kintsugi can relate to the Japanese philosophy of "no mind"(無心 mushin?) which encompasses the concepts of non-attachment, acceptance of change and fate as aspects of human life. " (Wikipedia)
Winter seems like a dead, broken time of year to me. But even on the snowiest days, if there's some sunshine, I can deal.
