brush

Carpe Diem #1071 brush (zen-calligraphy)

Once upon a time .... painting and calligraphy seemed like a good hobby.  To achieve the desired results required preparation of the paint.  Mixing colors or possibly a thinning agent for the right consistency.  The loading of the brush was just as critical.  Too little and the continuous stroke could not be completed.  Too much and the result was more of a blob than the desired swirl or dot.  The angle of the hand and the right brush for the task.  So much to think about and consider!  Never the desired result.  If only one had just let go ....
