Beautiful simple

A moth, of all things, has shown me a beauty that can be found in simplicity. This moth has been living in our bathroom for the past two days and we have all noticed it and commented on its presence.

Something about its color and shape in contrast to the pale eggshell blue backdrop…

The little tear in its wing.

This moth will stay.

In contrast, I have been working on some highly detailed felting and have enjoyed the challenge and the valuable things I have learned from the process. However, I miss the simplicity of design of my previous work. More is not always better.

And I have a wool’s nemesis to thank for the reminder.
