I have been wanting to do a scrappy one-patch for a while, so I dug into one of many ziplock scrap bags and started cutting 1.5 inch squares. I was going for "bright". I think I got it.
While cutting I starting thinking about Kathie's brown and pink nine-patch she recently posted, so I pulled out a few more pinks and browns and came up with this.
Wabi-sabi (侘寂) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a concept derived from the Buddhist assertion of the Three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin ), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō ).
After reading that complete description, how about we call this wabi-sabi lite?
