Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.

Experimenting in my Art Journal.

Mandala flower and flowing text (Photo by iHanna - Hanna Andersson)
A mandala inspired by Tammy. Adding bright watercolours. Letting some paint drip.

Then some Ink smearing (Photo by iHanna - Hanna Andersson)
Then covering the page with swirly handwriting. And watered down paint so that the writing smears. Intentionally. Because when it smears it looks in that lovely way that I’m interested in. Wabi sabi kind of pretty.

I enjoy my watercolours a lot.
