Some of the best things of life are spontaneous. Sure, it’s good to have goals and plans for major aspects of living, but there is a lot to be said for creative impulses, too. Life is too short not to allow for our “wild hairs”.
I’ve been using a tall, very heavy marble cylinder container as a floor vase for a couple of years. In preparation for spring cleaning I decided to update its arrangement. A purple faux gladiolus stem harmonizes with that of the vase. Two elements of greenery give the composition stability.
The rainbow trout vase is pure kitsch. I smile whenever I see it. To make it look more snazzy, a trio of roses works just right.
The Hull Art series vase is still gorgeous even though it was crudely repaired by its previous owner. Although its value to serious collectors is almost nil, it can serve as a container without worry of further damage. White and light purple compliment the vase’s glaze.
The Blue Jay of Happiness likes this thought from musician Conor Oberst: “I think that, with anything creative, you should have the freedom to experiment, and that experimentation means not feeling totally responsible for how other people perceive it.”
