'Perfect Imperfection'

  • 'Perfect Imperfection' - During a bushwalk with my4 yo granddaughter, we discovered an amazing leaf, almost perfect with its delicate tracery of veins. Inspired, I created a spider web of filigree lines in metallic paint to simulate the veins of the leaf. All was going well until disaster struck by way of the background colour running across the metallic leaf. I thought all was lost until I rethought my original plans and created the piece you see here, where the leaf has been ravaged by nature and the elements. Still beautiful in its 'Imperfect Perfection' - perhaps even more so. It made me stop and think how in our society we often strive for perfection, not seeing the true beauty of our own 'Imperfect Perfection,' or give up when things go wrong. Maybe it's time to stop striving and celebrate being YOU in all your glorious imperfection! Created in metallic and non metallic Watercolour
