Layers upon layers of humble green, a meditation for the mind. As the zen proverb says ‘be like the bamboo, the higher you grow the taller you bow.’
Artist study. Not for sale.

This little painting was like a detox for the mind – just layers upon layers of humble green – and the linearity gave it a meditation like feeling.
By the end of it, I felt positively stretched out and bendy – just like these immense (but tiny) bamboo shoots.
I’ll zen-d off January with this Chinese Proverb.
🎋Be like the bamboo. The higher you grow, the taller you bow.🎋
