"Know the white, but keep the black"
#fairyfaeweek Day 3: Light/Dark
I decided I needed a day to keep it simple which is it's own kind of challenge for me. I often want to do full and elaborate backgrounds with lots of color so when I do something more simplistic I struggle just letting it be finished. It's a search for balance that may still elude me but I'm sure it will fall into place. Let me know what you think? #fairyfaeweek2019 #artchallenge ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ "Know the strength of man,
But keep a woman's care!
Be the stream of the universe!
Being the stream of the universe,
Ever true and unswerving,
Become as a little child once more.
Know the white,
But keep the black!
Be an example to the world!
Being an example to the world,
Ever true and unwavering,
Return to the infinite.
Yet keep humility!
Be the valley of the universe!
Being the valley of the universe,
Ever true and resourceful,
Return to the state of the uncarved block.
When the block is carved, it becomes useful.
When the sage uses it, he becomes the ruler.
Thus, "A great tailor cuts little." -Lao Tzu from Tao Te Ching
