Wisdom and watercolor

I found a tiny doll in a second hand shop. I placed her in my watercolor landscape an took a shot.

Ducks! Watercolor on A5 sketch paper.

Yin and Yang is a concept of dualism. Most people think the symbol should be and mean "perfect balance" but I don´t think the Universe is perfect so, my symbol is not perfect.
That is wisdom to me.

  1. I agree with you that the universe is not perfect as I am either. These are nice interesting painted pictures the ballerina is grandoius, sweet the doll that enjoys in nature!
    You implemented the topic great!
    Greetings Elke

  2. Monica,

    Nothing about this world, universe is perfect. Above all people! Good throw in for today's theme. I like your ballerina dancer silhouette! :)

    My artwork this week: Pencil sketches: King Solomon and a sweet, elderly couple

  3. Gorgeous pieces! Your Yin/yang is interesting.

  4. Our Universe is ever so imperfect but the goal would be to find perfection as is illustrated in Yin and Yang. I am afraid it will never happen ... in fact, I think we are going in the opposite direction, sadly. Love your art and how cute with the little doll in your landscape. Your mind takes you to so many awesome places :)

  5. great art projects! I love the ballerina one especially this week. And that doll must be awfully tiny-cute. Happy PPF!

  6. Such wonderful projects and inspiration. Love the ballerina.

  7. Wow Monica, these are excellent. I love the watercolors. Well done and have a great weekend.

  8. Hi Monica :)) Oh how very smart of you NOT to make your Yin and Yang perfect. I really agree with that! Clever! Your watercolours are beautiful, I love the ducks! And what a fun idea to photograph your doll on your painting!!! Thanks so much for joining in this week!! :)

  9. Lovely watercolours and artwork. I think it's wonderful that your Yin and Yang is imperfect!
