Pablo Picasso captures best this ‘Few Words’ Wednesday with his poignant quote. “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.” Did you know that today, March 14, 2012 would have been the 101st birthday of head honcho origami artist, Akira Yoshizawa?
Picasso’s quote accompanied with this simple image of an Iris reticulata, (the first bulb to bloom in our garden this year) works quite nicely with this origami celebration! Can’t you see this blossom easily transformed into origami art; at least for someone good at making such creations? Creative inspiration, when in tune to it, comes from everywhere, including our own gardens. We become artists, creating beauty each and every day that as Picasso reveals “come from all over the place.”
How many more days until spring? Are you ready for the first bulbs in bloom?
