My ikebana today is some work with curved lines using tulips and a painted branch. The last half of the week has been hard for me creatively, I’m just not inspired and I don’t know why. It could be the pollen, or that I am waiting for more variteies of flowers to come into bloom. Perhaps my well of creativity is running dry. I’ll see to it that I fill the well again and get moving in the right direction. As for today I am kind of pleased with the design, granted I would rather have different containers and perhaps another color of branch instead but as a whole it works. I’m particularly drawn to the shadow that the ikebana casts, that’s where the true play of the curved lines is shown.
